Blackberry Farm day 2
You can see that the sun was not out to greet us at all that day!
Now, you must understand that I love teaching on a spindle wheel. It absolutely will not put the wool out of your hands! You control the amount of tension you feel on the fiber. (as well as in your shoulders!) So I asked her if she would like to try out this spindle wheel I got from Gary and Carole Runyon, over at Deer Trace Farm.
We also had a young girl take to weaving like a duck to water. I happened to have the straw weaving kits from the center, and Marta showed her the ropes, she really enjoyed herself and was thrilled that she could take it with her. Unfortunately I didn't get her picture!
Maybe one day we will hear of a new weaver that first learned about weaving at Blackberry farm.
Until next time, Happy Weaving, Tina
