Oh, and there is the Nutmeg Spinners Guild on Ravelry, I'm sure if you ask around there you can find some one to help you. There is a woman up in Dayville that just opened up her own little fiber mill last year I think.
Not to be discouraging, but rather to encourage in a way to help you love spinning as much as I do! It's really magical.
Do you have a wheel? Or were you hoping the class would have loaners?
Have you found the spinners magazine called Spin-Off? I've never checked out their website, but guessing that either one would have resources for classes, wheels, teachers, and places that would process the fiber for you (clean, card and/or spin). Spin Off is often available at B&N.
Um, there is a gal on Ravelry trying to get a SECT spinner's group going. I can give you her Facebook link. (nope she's changed it.)
Of course, with notice, you could crash our Thursday night or Saturday morning knitting group and someone could give you a drop spindle lesson.

In fact, you could probably buy one and teach yourself. It is not hard to learn but it takes some practice to get a consistent, even thread.
Have fun, alpacas so wonderful!
I live in Sturbridge, MA and am looking for someone to teach me to spin FLEECE, Alpaca specifically. Sister-in-law sent me pounds of it from her Alpaca Ranch in PA.
Already an avid knitter & crafter. Think I can learn to spin in a day. Old Sturbridge Village won't let me use their wheel unless I know what I'm doing. HELP.
