Is it my imagination or are people spinning on spindles more right now?
I don’t know if it’s because of summer and they are portable, but I have seen more spindle spinning around in person and on social media.
I’ve heard rumors that there are fewer spinners now, that the spinning trend is leveling off and maybe dropping. The rumor is that spinners are turning to weaving and sewing and not spinning, not buying fiber or wheels.
I know spinners aren’t going anywhere and that this is part of the ongoing rhythm of fiber crafts in general. I also think that spinners are turning to spindles again. We are spinning on all spindles, but I have seen a crazy amount of spinning on Turkish spindles. I’ve also seen more spindle classes being offered at fiber shows and retreats.
Am I imagining things? Are you spindle spinning more?
