I just found this interesting video of spinning cotton on a supported spindle. i have never seen a spindle like this before. i would love to try one of these. I have been spinning cotton at home, both on my wheel and on a supported spindle. And I have fallen in love with cotton. It is such a lovely yarn at the end, so smooth and thin but strong. It has a lustre of its own, if only I could grow it here.

Bellow is a photo of the lovely Straddie ( in the orange) who came up with the idea for this weekend and put in many, many hours of work to arrange and create this fantastic oportunity. You can see her husband Rob in the blue shirt and cap who also put in many hours to help Straddie. She did such a great job and there was so much fun had by so many people. A huge thankyou goes out to her and all those who helped.
