July 8th & 9th, I will be demonstrating Handspinning at the Briar Brook Barn Sale. Come out and learn to make yarn—I’ll teach you how to spin on a drop spindle of the kind used since the Middle Ages, older than the Spinning Wheel. Come out to see what I make from fleeces of sheep and alpaca—even milkweed fluff! There will be measured skeins of handspun double and triple ply yarn, and fabric I have woven on my vintage Union 36 carpet loom. That's my Union below, displaying both the cloth I'm making and the handspun yarn I'm working with. This piece is now done, and will be coming off the loom this week.
