A New Drop Spindle and the Holiday Card Exchange
In early September I came across the website John Galon Designs. I think I found the link in a spindle group on Facebook but I don’t remember. https://johngalen.com/ He makes beautiful spindles, many from old, timepieces. I didn’t get a timepiece one but I did get one.
Here is the reveal
Are you ready? here it is:
It is a very pretty and cool spindle. The acrylic in the middle is actually clear but the purple of the spindle radiates out through it. There are about a dozen colours to choose from. I am really pleased with it. Now I need to spin properly with it. I am not used to a spindle with such a small whorl.
The other thing I wanted today is to announce the 2020 holiday card exchange on the Felting and Fiber Studio Forum. We have been doing a card exchange for several years now. Its a fun and easy way for us to share a little cheer at this time of year.
You can sign up on the forum, here: Holiday Exchange link
the deadline to sign up is Oct 24th, Partners will be assigned ( by random generator) on Oct 25th
You have to make a felt card and send mail it to your partner by Nov 14th
Once you receive your card you post a picture of it on the forum
The cards do not have to be Christmas cards they can be anything. There is a lot going on in late December and there is New Year too. We are starting a little early this year and on a tighter timeline, having you ship earlier so the cards have a good chance to get there for the holiday season.
Here are a few I have made over the years
