In this video workshop, expert instructor Amelia Garripoli makes supported spindle spinning accessible to spinners of all skill levels. You'll learn the basics as well as Amelia's expert tips and tricks for fiber preparation, plying, and more.

Take a peek at Amelia's antique hand spindle collection—you'll see a fragile Akha spindle that was once buried in earth, glimpse a French spindle with an affixed metal cap, and discover why Russian spindles get shorter over time. With Amelia's passion for supported spinning and comprehensive lessons, you'll be spinning supported with ease and confidence.
About the Instructor:
Amelia Garripoli teaches spinning and weaving after escaping from Silicon Valley in 2001. She moved to Washington, bought a house that came with two llamas, promptly bought them a spinner’s flock, and sat down to learn how to use their fiber. Amelia self-published her book Productive Spindling in 2009. She writes the popular blog Ask the Bellwether at askthebellwether.blogspot.com.
