Hello. I googles spinning wheel classes in Sacramento and found my way to you. I have an inquiry. My Mother in Law has a spinning wheel and has always mentioned that she would love to take classes on how to use it. We both have llama's and sheep and currently donate our wool (to schools and such) but would love to take advantage of the spinning wheel to utilize some of our wool. Just wondering if you know of any classes or private teachers in the area in which she and I (and maybe the older granddaughters) could learn to use the spinning wheel. Thank you for your time. I can be reached at
