Bedfordshire Guild- 18 May 2013

We taught a spindle spinning workshop at Bedfordshire Guild There were eleven participants, mostly experienced spinners, though some had not been spinning for very long.

They were all very keen and we got through a lot in the day. In the morning, we covered spinning wool on top whorl spindles, and then moved on to plying. Here's one Guild member, plying off a nostepinne.

After lunch, everyone tackled cotton spinning, on Akha spindles and tahklis. They all "got it", and we were impressed that a number of people went so far as to ply their cotton.
