This meeting had a focus on spindles. Sheila had brought along a collection of different types, and started by demonstrating a kick spindle. The spindle is supported in a framework and operated by spinning the ball at the lower end with the foot, giving the spinner a really good workout!! She also demonstrated a Navaho spindle, as well as smaller supported spindles. Other people were using a variety of spindles – top whorl, bottom whorl, Turkish, dealgan. Sue ended the day by giving a quick demonstration of fancy yarns as a taster for the October workshop. She made them look very do-able!.
Sadie had brought along her completed Tapestry Certificate of Achievement presentation, for which she had been awarded a well earned Distinction. Some photos:
