Introduction to Spinning on a Spindle

Learn the easiest way to spin...on a spindle. This Wednesday evening at the Mid Island Weavers and Spinners (aNd otHer fiBRe freAks) Guild meeting the program will focus on spindle spinning.
"Spinning on a wheel is quicker by the hour but spinning on a spindle is quicker by the month."  That's because you can always take a spindle with you in your purse, ready to put it to use at any moment to fend off boredom: spin on the ferry, spin in the car (not while driving), spin at the doctor's office, the airport, on a plane, on the beach...anywhere!.  If you have a spindle - bring it and if you have extra, please bring them so those without can give them a spin.  Liz (and others) will demonstrate a variety of spindles.  Wool will be provided and spindles will be available.
WARNING: Please be aware that spindle spinning can be addictive!
