Spinning


Can anyone tell me if there is a UK based group for spinners? I have found
many that are US based and are really terrific but I would like to find a
local one as well. Anyone any ideas?
Many thanks

Many thanks. I had heard that Cher had formed a group but didn't know where to look. Are there many spinners in the RCTY?

I have lurked here for a few years. I tend to come and go!!! Then there are so many posts I can't keep up. You are definitely a friendly and caring group. I am a knitter first and started as a kid about 3 or 4 as I couldn't walk too well and knit my first cardi for starting school. I then (joy oh joy!!) discovered spinning a few years ago and have loads of spun yarn but can't bring myself to knit the really nice stuff as it may not look so good when knit!!!! Found a beautiful book called Dazzling Knits and may try something out of it. The yarns used are similar to some that I have spun. Nice to talk to you

I'm in Belfast N Ireland Ophelia, where it is starting to dry up outside!!! Thought for a while I was going to have to start knitting an ark. If I remember correctly you have university kids??? Could be so wrong though.......

Believe it or not the sun is actually shining today!!! I had forgotten what it looked like.
No my kids are finished with all that and are up and away:)) I have a grandson though (the light of my life) Unfortunately they live in Germany so I don't see enough of them although we talk every day. It used to cost a fortune until we got Skype (software) So I use it to chat to all the kids now ... free!!!!!!!!!!!!

They were talking about Skype today on Working Lunch on BBC2.
Must have mixed you up with someone else from Scotland. We are getting a watery looking excuse for a sun at the this precise moment!! Well any sun is better than.....
All the best Andee

Oh it is wonderful. You can use voice so long as you have a microphone, or just type to each other of you need to be quiet:) We can all get onto the typing window too at the same time which is good:)
Yep it is watery but it is light:)))

Hello Andee, welcome to the group. There are quite a few spinners here, and I think that makes sense. Knitting sort of follows spinning....(big smile)
I am a spinner and live on Vancouver Island. Have you been spinning long ?
