You may have seen the Knit and Natter Group which meets in the Community Library on Tuesdays (10am-12noon). One of the organisers, Marilyn, who spins her own wool, is looking to setting up a spinning group.

If you would like to learn to spin (or start to spin again) — whether or not you have a spinning wheel — and are interested in the ancient craft, please contact Marilyn on 01844 290607 or at marilynandjonas@btinternet.com to express an interest. If there is enough interest, she would be happy to start a group at Haddenham Community Library.

On a cautionary note, Marilyn says that spinning can be habit forming!
