Drafting: The Long And Short Of It DVD!

FedEx just brought me my copy of my first instructional DVD! Drafting: The Long And Short Of It, from Interweave Press and sponsored by Louet North America, is an advanced beginner to intermediate level workshop in DVD form. One hour long, we get into the meaty topic of how to fine-tune your yarn to get the exact results you want.


Looking for a lofty, fluffy yarn? Learn to spin carded fibers with long draw. Looking for smooth and drapy? The worsted-style short forward draw is your answer. Do you have a challenging fiber, or are you after results in between, such as a drapy yarn that’s fuzzy? The answers are here. But it’s not all deadly serious: we make sure to have fun. Check out this video clip!

  4. Wonderful dvd, great information- especially on longdraw! Good camera angles, right over your shoulder. You are a natural in front of the camera and I will look forward to your next dvd!

  6. Woohoo, I’ve got mine on order now.
    I missed all the recent fun on your blog, my RSS feed must have died in the changeover. LOVE your new website layout.

  7. I just saw this this weekend at a friend’s house! Thank you so much! NOW I know what to do to get the yarn I want. (Whether I can make my hands cooperate is a different question). And thank you for making the concept of spinning from the fold one that I comprehend at last!

  8. Just got the video yesterday and am watching it now with my sister–Abby you are amazing and I am in awe of your spinning. We’ve learned so much this morning..Thank you for making this video 🙂
