The Guild's 'Third-Wednesday-of-the-month spin-in' was a success. Seven spinners turned up, along with seven spindles, six spinning wheels, unknown pounds of fibre, and loads of enthusiasm. Tina, a new guest arrived with two classic old wheels she had fixed, and was spinning up a beautiful long wool fibre she had died in deep purple hues (Heather would drool over this), Crystal was spinning cotton! Liz was spinning Hummingbird fibre roving of 60% Island Grown Organic Romney, 20% tussah silk and 20% mohair, Gwen was spinning on a wheel for the first time and within minutes had a steady stream of wool being wound on to the wheel. Melody was spinning superwash merino in beautiful shades of yellow and orange. Margo was spinning up inspiration and lessons and good fun was had by all. Next spin-in, Nov 17th.
