Response from The Spinning Barn:

Thank uou so much for such a wonderful review. It makes what i do so worthwhile when i hear how happy students are. Your spinning in lockdown obviously paid off and introduced you a whole new world of craft. I am always on hand to offer support and it would be great to see you for another course in the future. Keep up the good work.
Theresa and Teddy!

I had the most wonderful day learning to handle fleece from raw and to spin it into unique & beautiful usable yarn. Theresa was a brilliant teacher, and an inspiration: very knowledgeable and clear. I left The Spinning Barn eager and excited to do more of this wonderful craft.
Two days later I have bought my first wheel and can’t wait to start on my own. My head spins with the possibilities!!

Response from The Spinning Barn:

Thank you so much for such a wonderful review Anne. Im so happy that you enjoyed your day and particularly that you felt so inspired to continue. Im very excited to hear all about your wheel and your progress very soon.

An excellent weekend, with wonderful instruction from Theresa, who was very encouraging and used a number of ways to instruct us. A real treat to meet the sheep producing the fleece and then to process from start to finish with a skein of yarn. Can highly recommend, and great company plus catering to boot. Thank you

Response from The Spinning Barn:

Yvonne Van Iperen - - #27366

I had a lovely day. Theresa informed me upfront very well and the course was really helpful. Her knowledge is very good and she knows how to explain and show the ins and outs. She is very friendly and we could drink as much tea and coffee as much as we wanted and she made some lovely cake and biscuits. I did this course so now I can get started and practice.
Definitely recommend this course. Will apply for a follow up course when I get a bit more skilled.

Response from The Spinning Barn:

Yvonne, thank you so much for your review, it has made my day. You showed today that you are a natural spinner and I can't wait to hear about your progress. It would be lovely to see you on another workshop but in the mean time if you need any help then you only have to ask. xx

The day was well structured and clearly presented. Theresa was a really good teacher, and full of enthusiasm. Theresa would demonstrate each different stage, and then help you to get over problems you had as you tried it. I was a complete beginner and I would thoroughly recommend this course. I will be booking up more with the Spinning Barn!

Response from The Spinning Barn:

Thank you so much for your review Sarah, it is very much appreciated. I am so pleased that you enjoyed your day and found it helpful. I was most impressed with your spinning and really hope that you continue. It would be great to see you on another workshop but I am always here for advice in the meantime. Best wishes.
