Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

Maggie Casey covers all the basics you need to spin your own fabulous yarn. Spinning is growing in popularity as knitters want to make their own yarn and all it takes is some fluff, a spindle or wheel and a little practice! Maggie also offers a special section on troubleshooting and wheel maintenance, plus tips and tricks for creating better yarns. --Machine Knitting Monthly

On first opening this book I was intrigued and excited. It has a lovely size and layout which encourages you to delve in without being overwhelmed by information. The clear type and pictures encourage you to keep browsing. This is a book you can read cover to cover or just dip in. There are a lot of clear photos to show you the details of a process or the difference between major types of spinning wheels albeit some of the process photographs are not as comprehensive as I would like. The pictures of the carding process left me bemused and I know how to do it - or so I thought! I particularly liked the large print statement on the side column of many pages which re-emphasise the key points from the text to give you a sense of overview. Maggie takes you through the steps of spinning in her particluar style which I did not find the most logical path. I did miss the extension of the process beyond wool fibres but maybe that is a step too far for many beginners. The book includes lots of troubleshooting points to help you when things look quite different from how you imagined and there is a lovely philosophy which runs throughout the book which encourages you to enjoy the process, relax, practise and take your time. As an Interweave book it has the usual US bias for details of yarn and needles, but overall I found this book to be a fun read and one that would encourage many a beginner to develop their skills. --Journal for Weavers, Spinners & Dyers Winter 08

Présentation de l'éditeur

For knitters, crocheters, and weavers ready to make their own yarn, this handy guide provides detailed instructions for spinning both on a spindle and a wheel, and offers a special section devoted to troubleshooting and wheel maintenance that keeps projects on track. It offers a comprehensive look at the various available fiber options, choosing and preparing each type of fiber for use, and crafting these materials into ready-to-work pieces. A final chapter on the various uses of spun yarn focuses on project planning, with definitions and context for measuring wraps per inch, determining yards for specific projects, and choosing a yarn size.

un très bon achat ! le texte est clair et pragmatique, l'ensemble est très bien illustré. La table des matières couvre tout ce qu'il est nécessaire de savoir quand on débute le filage : fuseau, rouet, techniques de préparation et de filage, choix des matières et utilisation de la laine filée. Je vous recommande vivement ce livre !
Great book ! thorough and easy to understand. The photos are really good and it has everything you need to know when you're a beginning spinner. I highly recommend this book

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Best book for beginning spinners 23 avril 2008
Par Donna - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Start Spinning: Everything You Need to Know to Make Great Yarn is by the owner of our local yarn shop, Shuttles, Spindles & Skeins in Boulder, Colorado, one of the best spinning teachers on the planet.

As the title says, this book is an encyclopedia for spinning. It's perfect for beginners, and also has information for intermediate to advanced spinners. I consider myself an intermediate spinner. I don't have a ton of experience, but I can spin an even yarn to the approximate girth that I am shooting for. I don't know how to spin any novelty yarns (yet, see Intertwined: The Art of Handspun Yarn, Modern Patterns and Creative Spinning (Handspun Revolution)), and I have never spun enough of one yarn to make anything bigger than a vest. There is a lot of information in this book that is new to me and that I intend to use to enhance my own spinning skills.

Maggie's book includes instructions for spinning on a drop spindle and on a wheel, as well as lots of great material on preparing fiber for spinning. Color photos throughout illustrate all of the techniques, and Maggie is the model in the photos, which means that they all accurately depict the way she holds her hands and the fiber. The book is also infused with Maggie's personality and lots of humor, which makes it fun just to read even if you're not quite ready to get the fiber into your hands. If you've been thinking about learning to spin, this book truly is the right place to start. If you're a seasoned spinner, you'll find some advice and tips that will help you improve your skill.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Comprehensive Primer on Spinning 16 mars 2008
Par Cheryl Riniker - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I learned to Spin from Maggie herself, and this book was like her classes - outstanding. Her years of experience teaching others to spin are evident in the tips and descriptions of the book. She walks through various aspects of spinning from fiber selection and preparation to drafting techniques, plying, and finishing. The photos of the techniques in the book are especially well done. She references several types of spinning wheels so regardless of the spinning wheel you have or might choose, you have seen enough varieties of a flyer or drive band adjustment knob to make the connection.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 New to spinning? Cut-to-the-chase crash course in how to do it! 17 juin 2008
Par Judith Donovan - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I'm a new spinner and felt overwhelmed with the technical aspects of it when I decided to learn. What I needed was a "just the facts" kind of guide that would let me get started and not overwhelm me with nerdy technical stuff that passionate and experienced practitioners love to talk about. Start Spinning is definitely it!

Based on the reviews here, I bought a copy and agree completely with the 5-stars that most of the reviewers gave it.

It's like a teacher in a box. Great illustrations. Clear definitions of terms that you really need to know Does not overwhelm you with jargon that you will pick up later if you get seduced by the craft. Covers everything from basic spinning, plying and using your handspun to choosing a wheel, planning a project, buying and evaluating fleece for spinning. SIMPLE and CLEAR. And not too much information.

I love this book and would recommend it to anyone curious about the craft of spinning and wanting a good reference guide.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 A bit disapointing 4 septembre 2012

Interweave in certainly a major presence in the fiber community and may of us look forward to the latest issue of Interweave Knits to arrive. I am just starting to spin and was looking for a basic guide and this sounded like the perfect solution. I'm glad I got the disk, but I was a bit disappointed with the disk. Maggie takes Eunny through all the steps in starting to spin, gives you several ways to draft, goes over fiber prep, and gives tips on wheel care. While the information is good, the production of the video was lacking. It seems the director was unfamiliar with spinning and didn't know what to include in the shots. This is understandable, but there should have someone in the process to be sure that the proper information was being captured. There are some basic mistakes. When Maggie is showing one drafting technique she is using a dark fiber and she is wearing dark pants. The result is the fiber disappears against her pants and it's difficult to see what is going on. Someone should have caught that. There are several sections where Maggie is explaining how to hold the fiber or draw out the fiber while you are spinning, but the shot stay on the front of her instead of going to her hands. There is one instance where she is specifically telling you and demonstrating the incorrect hand position on the fiber that causes slubs, but the shot doesn't go to her hands until after she has finished demonstrating the incorrect hand position. The same goes for when Eunny is changing the bobbin on the wheel. The shot stays on the front while she is removing the bobbin and adjusting the drive bands, so we can't see what she is doing. They never show Eunny spinning at all. It would have been nice to see the comparison between an experienced and new spinner, if nothing else so you would know that what you are doing is pretty much what a new spinner gets.

I think Interweave should produce a new version of this video with better editing and more close-ups, or even split-screen images. i think you will benefit from the video, but it should have been so much better.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Spinning class in a book 18 mars 2008
Par sfknitter - Publié sur Amazon.com

I'm familiar with the author through her articles on spinning. I happily pre-ordered this book and am very happy that I did. As the previous comment indicates, it is like a class. It has the small and big details (like exactly where to place wheel cords) I need to know to start spinning. The book is written in very encouraging terms and me too, I love the very good photos. Of course nothing is better than a class with Maggie Casey but this book is sure helping!! (I've only had it a day too.)
