Michael Kelson (he/him/his) is the coordinator for the annual Men’s Fall Knitting Retreat and the Seattle Men Who Knit meet-up. His methodical, sample-based approach to spinning instruction resonates with students of all levels.
Michael has taught spinning classes at fiber festivals across the country including Madrona, Columbia Gorge Fiber Festival, NWRSA Conference, Black Sheep Gathering, Fiber Fusion, Ply Away, and will be teaching at Red Alder 2023.
By day he is a software engineering professional, but on weekends he’s usually out and about with his miniSpinner in tow.
The best compliment he ever received from a student was, “I learned stuff I didn’t even know I needed to know!”

Lecture: Spinning your perfect Skein
As spinners, every choice we make impacts our final product.
– What fiber should we use?
– How should it be prepared?
– How much twist does it need?
– How do micron count, and crimp structure impact your final yarn?
– How do we choose our ply structure?
– How do we finish our yarn?
This presentation will discuss how we think about each of the variables that influence the choices we make and how those choices impact our final product
