Hey There!

Oh how fun! I just bought my drop spindle as well:teehee: I had the help of the ladies at my SNB though. Youtube is a great resource, I agree, and also if you type in "learn how to spin" on google I found a ton of great recources! My drop spindle also came with a small directions sheet... did yours as well?:)

Love,
Lexie:muah:
