Looking for the Bellwether's Learn to Spin Kit? Order the book (Productive Spindling) and the spindle (The Bellwether Spindle) below in one order, add a comment to your order asking for some starter fiber, and I will toss in a ball of the medium wool roving I teach spindling with. If you forget to add the comment, use the Contact Form as soon as your order is done. I am always happy to get folks started in spinning.
The Bellwether Spindle has been praised by students and teachers alike as a well weighted, general purpose spindle. Its weight, 1.6oz, is suitable for DK to worsted weight yarns, and its shape provides a long spin time. Buy just one, or get the teachers' discount by ordering 4 or more. Bare wood, all grown and made in the USA, ready for your hand or whatever wax, oil, or paint you'd like to apply. Zinc hook from my local hardware store, reshaped by me. All spindles assembled by me or my family.
Price: $10 for 1, $6/ea for 4 or more. Select the appropriate option for the number ordered.

E-books
E-books are emailed as PDFs once I receive payment. It's a manual process, so if I am outside wifi range it might be a bit before I see the order. If you prefer an online library, three of these e-books are available on PatternFish. I would be happy to resubmit the others if there is interest. If you are interested in handouts for other workshops I teach, contact me to see if they are available.
