Much as we hate to think about it, every spinner makes mistakes . . . and expert spinner and teacher Maggie Casey is no exception. In her new video workshop, she opens her trove of finished projects (and unfinished ones!) that didn't come out as planned and discusses where she went astray. Whether the faults were in the spinning or in the project design, Maggie explores how she could have made each project better—and what lessons she took forward to her next project. With Maggie's help you'll avoid common errors and learn how sampling and swatching can save you from spinning mishaps.
