My creativity didn't stop with one craft...

Hello and welcome!

I've always been crafty. I've been a professional seamstress for over 20 years: since 1974. I have knitted since my late teens and learned to crochet a few years ago, thanks to the charts that are in use now. When I retired as a professional seamstress, I was making Civil War reenactment gown with their matching bonnets but when that got so painful to my right arm and shoulder (my sewing arm), I had to give it up. So I returned to knitting and crochet after a 30 year break.

But one of the crafts that I really wanted to tackle was spinning ever since my teen years. But for a teen to purchase a spinning wheel was quite an expensive endeavour.

So almost 40 years later for my birthday, my husband bought me a spinning wheel. And a beauty of a spinning wheel! A Kromski Minstrel. He said it looked like a work of art. He would enjoy watching me spin away and spinning has an relaxing effect on the spinner. When I would spin, I could understand why Mahatma Gandhi spun at his chakra spinning wheel. With all the trouble going on in his nation at the time and the many burdens placed on him, spinning was a form of relaxation, meditation.

So now you know why I enjoy my spinning wheel and the many benefits it offers me: artistically and peaceful meditation in the action of spinning.
