Anyway I was wondering if any of you have some tips I should take with me - and should I wear an apron?
:rofling: Yes, it would not be a bad idea to take an apron!!! My advice is for you just to relax and not get frustrated if you do not "get it" right away. Spinning does involve coordinating hands/eyes (and feet, if you are using a wheel) and can take some practice to get used to. Most people have a problem with keeping a death grip on the fiber when it should be held lightly. Also, predrafting to allow the fibers to slide out easily is essential. Most of all, have fun!!
