Utrecht fiber fest spinning

“Spinning is a post apocalyptic survival skill”. At least that’s what Lili van Wattum from Sticks and Cups said on Sunday when I went to the first Utrecht Fiber Fest together with me friend @hakenenogen on Ravelry (who prefers to not be named on the internet with her real name).
We got to learn different spinning techniques using a spindle stick that she had made for the purpose. Spinning some carded fleece for us to try with.

Me to the left in 1974 on a scouting camp where we got to spin viking style. I look very concentrated, heh? :-)
