A while back, Hilary brought in a big bag of cotton she had got at one of the open days which have been occurring for different spinning groups in South Australia. Lettie took on the painstaking job of sorting it into even piles so anyone who wanted to purchase some of this cotton at rock bottom prices could do so. Hilary had thought of us while she was out and was simply looking to recoup her costs. It’s a nice feature of our club that we bring things in that other members can benefit from. One of the best gifts is always something which will help people learn. A number of us had never spun cotton. It’s not that easy to get. Some of us wanted the cotton for other things , like Sheila was thinking it might suit her little pots. We could buy an appropriate amount for testing and trying out. Experience is a great teacher . It is going to be good to see what people actually do with their cotton. The video gives some really good tips for spinning cotton. There are also some clear instructions and patterns on spinning daily.
