    An informal spinning group focusing on drop spindle yarn method from wool and other fibers.  Beginners and more advanced spinners welcome.  Bring your own spindle and fiber, or if you are new to this ancient craft, contact us ahead so we can provide "loaners" to you (a small fee for wool used will be collected as arranged in advance).  Drop spindle spinning uses a lightweight spindle that is very portable, as opposed to a heavy and expensive spinning wheel.  Co-sponsored by the Friends of Hathorn House Historical Society.

    Email us ahead of the meeting if you are new and need the loan of a spindle:  sgardner@rcls.org; at your first session, beginner's sample of wool will be available for $5.00
