A really successful event. That is apart from me forgetting to take my camera! Lots of people attended, and we drew a lot of interest from the locals and holidaymakers.
I was really tired and aching by the end of it. Treadling for 7 hours solid - I'm just not used to spinning for such long periods yet. I filled a bobbin and a half of singles ready for some double-knit I'm planning to use for a cardigan. Things got a bit sticky as the tent reached 28 degrees C, so fibre wasn't gliding through our hands very easily. Ruth advised talc, so I'll remember to buy a tiny tub of baby powder to take to my next event.
I also started spinning my pink silk which I'd prepared from the hankies. I did this on a new spindle I picked up from the Rare Breeds show. It's a lot easier to work on something in the slow motion of the spindle, as the silk is so hard to draw. Sue S from the Guild was spinning directly from a cap which was impressive. She also had her Great Wheel in the tent which she was demonstrating from time to time. Here's a page all about the Great Wheel from Wikepedia. It really is a large beast.
