Response from The Spinning Barn:

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

2 day hand spinning workshop Norfolk, Lincs, Cambs, Borders

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.

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

Anne, thank you so much for such a lovely review. I am so pleased that you enjoyed your time here and I would be delighted to welcome you back at any time. I was so delighted to see how quickly your skills returned after way too long away from your wheel. Some people are just meant to spin and you are definitely one of them. Do let me know how you get on over the coming weeks and also when your new wheel arrives!! Best wishes and happy Christmas xx

Theresa is a great teacher and her enthusiasm and knowledge is terrific. We all had plenty of time and attention spent on each of us and I look forward to going on another course, and joining the Saturday morning spinning get together.

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

Theresa has so much enthusiasm for her craft that it spills over onto you. Her handouts were just what I needed to start off my journal on the fleeces I have collected. There was a good balance between technical and practical. My problems with carding were answered. I also learnt a different way of spinning to my technique I use already. All in all a great day with a lovely tutor in a fabulous setting.

Response from The Spinning Barn:

Thank you so much for your review Ros. I am so pleased that you enjoyed your day and found it informative too. I always say it but it never feels like work to me when I know that somebody else has enjoyed their spinning. As for your individually styled technique, don't stop! Crafting is all about your expression and enjoyment although a few 'extra tools' in the bag are always handy! Do keep up the good work. x

Thank you so much Jenni. It was a fabulous group and I am so pleased that you enjoyed it. I just loved your wheel too! Your first spinning was so amazing and I totally agree that a longer workshop would really help to consolidate your new skills and build your confidence. I shall look at some dates and make sure that you are the first to know!! If you have any questions do just ask. xx

An excellent days experience. Clear and helpful instruction. Lots of good information backed up with clear notes. I was very impressed by Theresa's consistent and helpful attention throughout the day. I really enjoyed her heart felt enthusiasm for her flock and their wellbeing. I didn't get to meet them which was a shame, maybe next time. Well worth the very reasonable cost and I thoroughly recommend it as a way to see if spinning is something you would like to learn.

Thank you so much Helen for your review. Receiving it was a lovely end to my busy day. I am so pleased that you enjoyed your day and that you produced a fabulous skein of yarn. That always makes me so happy at the end of a workshop. I do hope that you get your own wheel soon and can't wait to see what you produce after shearing time!! Theresa and Ted!

Had an absolutely fabulous day. I learnt so much and Theresa is an amazing teacher and so friendly, I felt relaxed straight away. Everything about the day was just brilliant and at the end of the day I took home my first skein of wool. So thank you again Theresa and a big stroke to Ted for his company. I would not hesitate a moment in recommending Theresa’s course to anyone.

Response from The Spinning Barn:

Thank you so much Carol for your lovely review. I really do appreciate it. It was such a fun but busy day and you made a fabulous start with your spinning obviously aided by your gorgeous wheel too!! Do keep up the good work and I shall await pictures showing your progress! Well done.

Hand spinning workshops for beginners Norfolk/Cambs/Lincs borders

As with the other reviewers I had a great day and learnt lots. Definitely worth doing as there are so many hints and tips that Teresa can pass on, including origins of sayings!

Even though a wet day, the fire was on in the wood burner, dog on a sheepskin rug, us spinning away (yeh after a short time of practicing) made a lovely experience.

If your wavering about going along don’t.

Thank you so much Sarah for your really lovely review. I am feeling very humbled. Your spinning was already so brilliant and I found your enthusiasm infectious too. I ended the day feeling inspired myself! I am really looking forward to seeing your progress in the future. Thank you x

I thoroughly enjoyed the course. Theresa's enthusiasm for her craft is infectious and her ability to tailor the course to the individual's own interests makes it even more special. I came away inspired to carry on especially as I was given a small amount of fleece from Humbug, one of Theresa's own sheep so that I could try spinning with a third different type of fleece. I will definitely be practicing what I learnt as I hope to return to take a more advanced class in the future.

Thank you Val for such a lovely review. It is very much appreciated. Every workshop is a different experience for me too and I was so interested in your historic area of spinning. Do keep up the good work!

I had an absolutely brilliant day with Theresa, she's very knowledegable, let's you go at your own pace and was just a great teacher. Just be warned, you might come away wanting not only your own spinning wheel, but also your own flock of rarebread sheep!
