A Spinning Demonstration

Our talk for the evening was delivered by three lady members of the ‘Leek and District Guild of Spinners, Weavers and Dyers.  Marina Savage, the owner of 10 different types of spinning wheels, told us of the diversities of spinning using all manner of materials, such as Camel’s hair. Cashmere made from the hair of a Yak (a goat).  Ingeo corn top, (Strands taken from the heads of corn).  Egyptian cotton, and Merino wool to name just a few.  Samples of these were passed around together with finished made up items.  She informed us that even paper can be woven.  June Hague and Paula Whitelaw demonstrated spinning on their wheels, and members were invited to have a go. These days, electric driven spinning wheels can be purchased if the spinner has lost the use of their legs. Rosemary Heath gave the vote of thanks to these three talented ladies.
