This is a skill I wish every spinner (and craftsperson) had - to improvise the tools of their trade.

Because wishing something isn't enough, I decided to make a video showing how to make a drop spindle!



If you like the cute chickens at the end or want to see more tutorials like this, please pop over to youtube and give the video a thumbs up or better yet a comment.  It helps fuel me more than I can say.  

If you do make a drop spindle (and I hope you do), please let me know and maybe post some pictures here.

I love this!!! I'd heard rumors of how spindles can be made from potatoes or apples, but could never find any information as to how to make said drop spindle.

(I also love that you put hidden things in the closed captions! )

Great video!
Love on improvising when you do have what you need.  As kids we did it all the time so why not as adults!
Thank for the inspiration!
