COMMUNITY TENT THIS WEEK

Genesee Valley Handspinners Guild

Julia Cook and Cary McIver will be demonstrating hand spinning at the community tent this week.

Hand spinning has a long and rich history in many regions of the world, from Great Britain to Russia to India to the Andes. One of the oldest forms of hand spinning uses a hand-held drop spindle. The (relatively) modern spinning wheel, which dates back to the Middle Ages, is a less portable but more efficient way of turning animal fiber into yarn. Julia and Cary will primarily be spinning on their wheels, but they will also have drop spindles available for display.

Interested in learning more about hand spinning? The Rochester area has its own guild! Visit the Genesee Valley Handspinners Guild today.
