Hi. Wendy was brilliant. She showed me how to spin slowly, get my tension right, sit at a good height and treadle more slowly than I was. I have caught the fever for spinning, and would love to get a new wheel, especially so I can take it in the car, when I have a bit more experience under my belt. My spinning group in Turramurra have loved my samples that I have brought to our morning teas. I will continue to see Wendy because of her business with all the tops, wheels and accessories. It was a great class and the other ladies were lovely to meet as well.

These four spinning sessions grouped together as ‘Beyond the Basics’ are led with great insight and experience in the art of spinning and appreciating fibre and yarn There’s not a question that can’t be answered. Plentiful resources along with knowledge sharing allow the participant to hone their existing skills and acquire new levels of learning in leaps and bounds. More! More! More! …please? 😊

A very adventurous, exciting, well organised fibre class. A wealth of experience and knowledge so easily transferred from the teacher (Wendy Campbell) to the student spinner. Wendy knows how to make even the most intense challenges fun and memorable. What a wonderful way to learn. The weekly homework with follow up reviews and group discussion, helped me understand and overcome some fibre/spinning issues. Certainly left me with more experience and confidence.
