ORIGINAL SPIN

The Brighton Spinning Group continues to meet each Friday afternoon at The Green Centre in Manor Road in East Brighton. We have three spinning wheels and a number of drop spindles and although we're a self-help group, there is usually someone around who can show newcomers the basics of spinning.

Someone helped themself to my handmade books of pressed flowers - not surprised really, they were gorgeous - and while I was off requesting an announcement about the loss, these handmade envelopes of woad, weld and madder seeds, wrapped in the appropriately dyed handspun yarn, also disappeared.
