This student fell in love with maggies trindleman spindle and learned to spin very even yarn
Each person probably tried 8 spindles. Top whorls, bottoms whorls, turkish,supported spindles. as well as opportunities to card and comb unprocessed fleece, soy silk, alpaca, silk hankies, soy silk, plus learn various breeds of fleece.
And although she tried them all she loved the golding celtic ring spindle the very best.
Busy at work every one learned to spin and to ply.
BUT THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IS WE HAD FUN TOO!!!
Maggie and some of the fiber stash and the turkish spindle.
We had a customer who is a long time excellent spinner come out to see what we were doing. She was amazed at the array of spindles and just could not resist playing as well. and lured by the Golding ring spindles .They are amazing in quality of workman ship and balance .
She has wonderful yarns , next time you are in santa cruz california stop by and visit THE GOLDEN FLEECE and say hi to her.
I love to reach out to the community teaching all fibery skills.
