Learning to Spin with Kim McKenna

At this week’s update, we’re delighted to share with you the video lessons now available at the Spin-In Clinic course taught by Kim McKenna!

Spin-in Clinic

Watch Kim as she works with three spinners: Deanna, Rachael and Charlotte, to guide them to the next level in their spinning journey. If you’ve been feeling a bit stuck in your own spinning progress, this course is an opportunity to experience what it’s like to have a trusted mentor at your side. Let Kim help take your next spinning step!

The exercises in the course workbook were prepared to help you explore your hand spinning, as shown in the course. We’d love to hear about your spinning progress–please share with us in our Community Forums. And if you’re new to spinning and not sure where to start, we recommend you first check out our Fundamental Spinning Courses. Happy spinning!


Spinning Luxury Fibres: Goats & Rare

Luxury Kit goats

Following our last two Spinning Luxury Fibres courses: Silk and Camelids, instructor Rachel Smith introduces us to spinning unique fibres in the following course. Including goats (cashmere, mohair, and pygora), yak, and angora, she’ll also guide us in blending them with wool and silk. Available now is the materials list to help you prepare for the lesson launch on August 2nd. In the course, Rachel goes over samples spun from the Spinning Luxury Fibres: Goats & Rare kit from SweetGeorgia. (Don’t miss the special discount code for the kits for SOS Members, too!)
