The spinning wheel is a machine used for turning fiber into thread or yarn, which is then woven into cloth on a loom. Spinning your own yarn is a time-honored skill and one that is enjoyable and practical. The items you can make from hand-spun wool can be superior in quality to anything found in the store. Join us as we welcome Kathryn Muldoon in store to celebrate the art of spinning at our Spinning Open House Friday Dec. 6th 4-7:00pm. Kathryn will be on hand to answer your spinning questions and to provide hands on demonstrations.
Rug hooking is both an art and a craft where rugs are made by pulling loops of yarn or fabric through a woven base. No experience is necessary for this class. Our teacher has designed this adorable winter tree and will guide you step-by-step through the rug hooking process. Finishing processes will be discussed but not done in class. Hoops will be available for use during class. A credit card is needed to reserve a hoop. Materials are provided for this class.

"The Twisted Ewe is the place anyone may come and find the creative fibers within themselves, that when woven together create something warm and beautiful."
When I began to dream of The Twisted Ewe, it was a place where people felt comfortable about coming and just hanging out with other knitters. To sit around a table and talk, exchange ideas (whether or not they are related to knitting) and help each other out. In this day and age it has become very easy to not have to interact, directly, with each other. I feel that as human beings we need to have direct contact with each other and I hope The Twisted Ewe becomes a place to do just that.
