New to Ed’s repertoire, Spinning Tools!

Spinners Retreat 5 May 2024

Ed has started something completely new and we are very excited about it! I never would have expected this line of artwork and tools. He has, with the continued help of a couple of new friends, Kim and Diana, developed a line of spinners tools.

So far he has developed drop spindles, supported spindles and cups for both lap and table top, nostepinnes, and ring distaves. Just last week he designed a new niddy noddy and is working on some dizzes next.

He has also been making some yarn bowls that are very useful to any fibre artist, or those who just knit or crochet for fun now and then.

Stay tuned, I will be writing posts on each of the items in the coming weeks. It’s hard to keep up with Ed as he is turning, turning, turning which keeps me very busy.
