A Spinning Wheel and the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival

We were able to return to Maryland's Sheep and Wool Festival this past weekend (for the last few years, we've had blacksmithing demos that conflicted).  Given our time away, I had plenty of things on my list!  And, the biggest one was a spinning wheel.  I was blessed to meet the wonderful Sunny and Tom Bixby of Liberty Ridge Farm and Gardens, got a quick spinning lesson from Sunny, and now own the double treadle portable Joy spinning wheel made by Ashford.   Yippee!  Now, I just need to become a proficient spinner!
