Staten Island Handspinners & Weavers Guild (New York)
A successful Learn to Spin session was held by the Staten Island Handspinners & Weavers Guild (New York) in fall 2009. Members spoke about properties of wool, the various types and their uses, and the preparation of it for spinning. Guests received one-on-one attention while spinning on wheels. A display of equipment including carders and different types of wheels with wool samples was used to aid in teaching the participants.
