“The distaff spinning talk was interesting and informative but also fun. The presentation would be of interest to all types of groups. Britain was shaped by the textile trade and most family histories will contain some “Ag labs” who almost certainly would have had to spin or weave or just sit holding skeins for grandma at some point in their lives. Before the talk, none of us had been brave enough to try using a distaff and most of us thought they were only used with flax. By the end of the talk we were itching to try and quite a few of us have acquired distaffs of our own to practice!”
Gillian Thomas, Secretary, Gwent Weavers, Spinners, Dyers Guild.

“A *huge* thank you to you and all the rest of the guys who came to do the re-enactment display for our wedding! We really enjoyed it and got a lot of (positive!) comments from our guests about it too. It really added to our day and was a fun way to keep with our castle theme.”
