I may be joining you guys!
I was at a YS (with my DH) this past weekend that deals primarily in spinning. I spoke with the owners about classes, which they do. My DH was very receptive and very sweet about me learning to spin.

I also happen to be one of the lucky people who lives dangerously close to The Fold (only 20 minutes!) and I see she has lessons. This is making it so much easier.

I've been looking through all your posts and today I joined pixie's mb (which is quite informative, thank PP! )

I know NOTHING about spinning, but I can tell you, I am so excited about learning. I actually dreamt about it today

I can't wait to become a part of this group!

I am no longer a fan of the fold after a bad encounter, but they have a good reputation.

Oh ya know sometimes things don't work out, I don't think it's appropriate for me to say and for all I know they could have been having a bad day, but I went with the Copper moose, as well did a friend of mine. Copper Moose and The woolery are who I reccomend.

It was super easy to get my wheel from CM and I got all kinds of goodies with it, 2 bobbins and a maintance kit thrown in for free!

I'll have to check out CM. My DH was actually on The Woolerys website earlier today.

*chuckle* I just ordered the one with the green wool from her last night-- it ships today- I can't wait to try it!!

Annie May was wonderful to work with, and she even is willing to help out via email
