Show and Tell

So why does it matter?  Why bother showing people how fibers turn into yarn and yarn turns into fabric?

My favorite wheel - the Ashford Traditional

My answer?  Because it’s magic.

If you don’t believe me, look around the next time a crowd gathers to watch a spinner.

Check out their faces.

Here’s what I see:  Intrigued.  Entranced.  Mesmerized.  Enthralled.

How amazing that such a simple tool can create an atmosphere of  surprise and delight!

But isn’t that exactly why we spin?

It delights us and inspires us – and involves us in a process  of transformation.

It doesn’t seem fair to keep that a secret.
