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:

Hi Theresa
It has been the best two days! As you know I have just completed my city and guilds in hand knitting. I could not have thought of a better way to complement this challenge. Tonight I have just ordered my spinning wheel, look forward to seeing you soon with my knitted skein.

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.

Kate, thank you so very much for your review. I am so pleased that you enjoyed the weekend and found it inspiring. I knew from the start that you were determined to spin however determination was soon overtaken by natural ability. The fact that you have already bought a wheel has filled me with pride. This really sums up why I love what I do and I can't wait to see your progress. I am always on hand for help and admiration! Xx

What a great two days. I took my old spinning wheel which had got the better of me ever since I bought it. Theresa, with the support of the other ladies, persevered and encouraged me until I produced a skein of yarn. Never thought I would make it. What a sense of achievement when the brain, head, hands and feet all work together to make what Theresa told us at the beginning of the weekend, we would achieve. Thank you Theresa for your patience, enthusiasm and knowledge.
A wonderful two days.

Response from The Spinning Barn:

Thank you so much Val. I am so pleased that you enjoyed you weekend, I know I did too. I can't tell you how happy I was that you really persevered with your wheel and produced a wonderful skein of yarn. I really hope that you were inspired to continue and learn to love your wheel again. If I can ever be of any help please just ask. Thank you x

Thank you so much for your review Karina. That really made me smile on a dreary, rainy day! I am so pleased that you enjoyed your day, and my little sheep. I really hope that you do continue to spin but realise how busy your schedule is. So get that wheel and allow yourself just a few minutes a day!!
Hope to see you again soon. Theresa
