There are a few Simple Steps to learning how to use a Drop Spindle to make your own yarn!

The trick is not to be daunted by it.

It's not really that hard, but takes practice.

This tutorial is a text course version of one of the beginner spinning classes I teach and includes 8 photos along with easy-to-follow instructions.

I learned to spin when I was very young, and have been doing it for over 35 years, teaching it over 15.

I hope this instructional tutorial will encourage and inspire your creativity.

This Beginner Tutorial breaks down the process of using a Drop Spindle step by step for beginners and is also a good refresher for those who have forgotten the steps.

Handspinning is like learning to rub your stomach and pat your head at the same time, or learning to ride a bicycle. It just takes a little practice to get your balance and rhythm.

Digital files are available automatically after purchase payment clears with Etsy. You may print this file from your home printer.

Acknowledge the things in Life that really count, things that make you or me smile & our hearts sing when in action, or at rest, things that center us, things we are good at.

Then, we each can share this with others to make a better world. - Amy C. Lund

Spinning, Knitting and Weaving since childhood, I find order and rhythm in placing each thread in my designs and enjoy the feel of the textures of the fibers in my hands.

I have an affinity for clean, simple designs which utilize and enhance the materials and techniques and bring them together - getting back to basics with an earthy rustic feel.

My finished products have timeless classic style suitable for any traditional rustic antique - filled primitive vintage farmhouse, french country cottage chic, coastal seaside retreat, mountain hideaway cabin, contemporary industrial loft, or modern Scandinavian - Nordic urban home decor.

It's all about how you style it!

I completed an M.S. in Textiles and Related Art from the University of RI and have studied and worked in several Art, History and Design Museums, demonstrating in historic settings at Shaker Villages and analyzing and managing collections behind the scenes.

I have participated in many Artisan fairs over the years and have my own Studio & Gallery.

My work has been featured in the Directory of Early American Craftsmen, in the Holiday collections of The White House, House Beautiful, Design New England, RI Home Design, Newport Life & Newport Life Wedding magazines, & has been sent around the world.

TECHNIQUE & ARTISTIC DETAILS

Each of my handmade textiles is made with careful handwork and consideration to form as well as function.

Detail and commitment to traditional artistry separate my hand woven textiles from many others.

I work with traditional hand and foot powered tools. Each piece is a test and display of knowledge of materials, technical skills, and artisanry.

Most pieces are hemmed and finished by hand, as well, to create a smooth, refined look.

PRODUCTION & DESIGN

Items are made one-of a kind, or in short runs. Items listed here in my shop are ready for sale as described. I try to provide a sampling of choices within a style until they sell out.

I am not a production artist, and do not wish to make 100s of the same thing.

That is the art of the craft!

Consider within reason if something really needs to be 1 or 2 inches longer or wider as you browse the items being offered.

Use the search button or links within the shop to find similar items, which may be offered in different sections.

Please contact me if you cannot find something to suit your needs.

Special orders can be placed for specific colors, longer runners, sets of table linens, or larger area rugs.

CARE & USE

Each piece is made to be used and should be cared for as you would any well-crafted tool.

Many of my finished items are machine washable, unless noted, and meant to be used every day, tested over the years by myself and by many of my customers.

With attention to care, handmade textiles will last a long time and bring continued enjoyment, although just as with anything, they may not last forever.

Consider textile heirlooms from past generations that are still used today. Well-made and cared-for, these can be heirlooms of the future.

COMMITMENT TO CRAFT

I commit myself to my work with my hands, my heart, and with my time as a full-time professional occupation, not as a hobby.

An hour of my time is worth at least minimum wage, just like yours, and most items take several hours of skilled work to design, make, photo, list and ship.

These pieces are works of enjoyable, aesthetic art as well as lasting utilitarian, working craft.

You will find the long-term values they carry can far outweigh some of the costs of things in your everyday environment that may be much more temporary or disposable.

Enjoy Artful Living with simple, sophisticated and stylish textiles.

Handmade textiles make unique gifts that give pleasure in the simplest of ways, highlighting holidays, celebrations and special occasions.

Treat yourself, or give a gift that keeps on giving.

I focus on classic patterns, colors, and textures that will fit in both traditional vintage or modern contemporary lifestyles and décor.

Heirloom home decor furnishings, textiles, table linens & fashion accessories hand woven in natural cotton, linen, wool, alpaca & mohair, will last for years.

Start your collection of Amy C. Lund Artisan Handwmade Textiles today and enjoy the pleasures of artful living!

When I first saw this potholder I knew immediately that I wanted one. The vibrancy of the colors and patterns just jumped out at me. I remember making a potholder for my Mom as a kid in summer camp. THIS is a Potholder! The textures, the look, the feel are magical! I'm taken in by it's beauty, and love each opportunity to use it. As you can see in the photo, I'm a fan of Amy C. Lund, Handweaver. The towels and the potholder all complement each other perfectly. All come from the heart and mind of Amy C. Lund, Handweaver. A perfect match. Thank you, Amy! And as always, wrapped beautifully by hand and shipped quickly. I just love it!

Long, warn, heathery, golden, green and really exactly what I wanted! The pictures do not do these beautifully woven scarves justice! I am so very happy with this piece! Plus it matches all of my jackets much better being heathered than it would have one solid color! I will wear it every time I leave the house! Fantastic customer service!

These were a gift for a swap in Ravelry - I absolutely adored them when they arrived! They're just adorable and the perfect gift for any spinner you know who loves their spindles. Thank you so much for the amazingly quick shipping as well!
