Drop spindles are beautiful, affordable, collectible, and they're a surprisingly efficient way to make yarn. (Most of the cloth made in the last 20,000 years was made from yarn spun on drop spindles.) In Drop Spinning 101, spinner and teacher Anita Osterhaug will teach you how to spin using this method.

About the Expert:

Anita Osterhaug is the editorial director of SpinOff magazine and editor of Handwoven magazine. She has been devoted to all things fiber since her first embroidery project at age 8. In parallel with a writing career, her historical interests and fiber-mania led her to learn handspinning and weaving. When not spinning, weaving, or knitting, she can be found writing or reading about, teaching, or demonstrating fiber arts. She lives in Hillsboro, Oregon with husband, critters, and a slightly embarrassing array of spinning wheels, looms, and other fiber accoutrements.
