getting ready

We have been getting ready for a day of fiber arts over at the Hatton Farm. On Wednesday, instead of going to our regularly scheduled spinning session at the library, we went to see Grace, and try out the antique spinning wheels in preparation for the workshop. I fell in love with a wheel from Finland. It spins like a dream, you don't have to do anything except sit behind it. I also spun on a Hyacinth Wheel, which is a beauty. The treadle has a lovely cast iron design on it...very unusual. I am looking forward to meeting the people who are signing up. Below, is a sample of the flyer that Grace created:
