So Interesting!
I'm so glad I decided to get this e-book. I found it very interesting and the information made me appreciate what can be done with a spindle. The various techniques used by the different cultures gave me ideas on ways to improve my spinning. Review by Carol (Posted on 12/7/2015)
Great Book
I enjoyed reading this book. It was very interesting. Review by Cindy (Posted on 7/2/2014)
I really appreciate this book
As an old rough-neck, I appreciate three things equally: Simplicity, Functionality and Nostalgia.

"Handspindle Treasury" meets all three of my criteria. I have turned my own design and have a hoot spinning it.

It is well written and the photographs are a blast.
