There’s a Whole Lot Going on: New Spinning Video


The spinning world (and non spinning world for that matter) has something to look forward to: a video from Interweave Press, sponsored by us (Schacht!) and starring Maggie Casey as the teacher extraordinaire and Eunny Jang (Interweave Knits editor) as her special student. I went along for the photo shoot and I have to say this is going to be one great teaching video (or two).

The idea behind the video is to help spread the spinning enthusiasm that seems to be everywhere these days.

The video should be out some time in May, so check at your local shop or visit us on-line for more details.
