Tracey Whitfield reviewed: Festive Yarn Spinning & Carding

"This was a great course for an introduction to spinning (with a drop spindle) Wendy got us up and running very quickly whilst also giving us really helpful insight into different types of fibres and how they behave as well as the things that we might follow on with if we wanted to do more spinning after the course. It was great to be able to take home our first efforts at spinning yarn!"

Duttons for Buttons responded:

" Thank you for your wonderful review Tracey! We are so glad you had a great time on the class and that Wendy was a helpful and knowledgeable tutor. Best of luck to you and all your further Yarn Spinning adventures! - Mrs Duttons WW"
