hand spindle

Learn to spin using the simple and portable hand spindle – sometimes called a drop spindle. Some variation of this method has been used from prehistoric times on every continent exept Antartica. Once you have learned on the hand spindle, it is much easier to spin on the wheel.

Rebecca will teach you either method.

You might be surprised, but the best time to create a new garden bed is while the ground is frozen! Learn how, and go home with the materials to install your own small ‘insta-garden’ which will be waiting in the spring, ready to plant your tree, flower bed, tomato or strawberry patch.
