I had the best afternoon ever with Ezzy. What a good teacher she is: patient, encouraging, explaining each step really straightforwardly and simply. A font of knowledge and wide experience, she arrived with lots of goodies to ensure I had a wonderful choice from which to spin yarn. Apart from Ezzy's skills as a teacher she is a really delightful person. The three hours I spent with her learning how to spin with a Turkish Drop Spindler couldn't have been better. I enjoyed every minute from the beginning to the end - and I'd love to learn more with Ezzy before too long again.
