Classes Scheduled

Spinning Classes

I am available to teach  spinning classes  at the Yarn Garden, 318 North Main Street,Bloomington.  Students  will learn both spindle and spinning wheel spinning from the beginning level. The class will meet for 2 hours on days agreed upon ahead of time.  Our plan is to accommodate those who need evening classes and/or classes during the day.   The tuition for  8 hours of class is $100 plus a $25 fee for materials. For those purchasing a spinning wheel, there is a refund of the $100 tuition. If you would be interested in participating in the class, please respond by  sending an email with any comments or questions you may have to, or contact me (and leave a message if I do not answer at once) at 309 452-3837. Or call Mary Lynn’s Yarn Garden at 309 808-0370.

Weaving classes  are  being scheduled in the near future. To inquire about prices and schedules, please contact Marti Deighan by emailing her at  In our loft, we have made larger looms, including floor looms, available for use in Mary Lynn’s Yarn Garden. There will be weavers’ support, one on one teaching,  and the opportunity to follow a project through to completion.  This will allow you to learn and practice before investing time and space and money in your own large loom.

To sign up for spinning classes, please contact Sheila at phone and/or email listed above.
