Led by Betsy Wintermute

Betsy started her exploration of spinning at the Southwest School of Art in San Antonio, TX in 1981 in a wheel spinning class taught by Doris Glenn. By then end of the 6 week class she had purchased her first spinning wheel. In the years since Betsy has share spinning with both adults and children and has studied with spinners across the country including Rita Buchannan, Ed Franquemont and Joanne Ruane. She has expanded her knowledge to include a variety of forms of spindle spinning and how to spin a vast array of fibers from both animals and plants. The learning continues.
