In the works ......"Connie Delaney Spindle Seminar" as time permits in an overpacked post Crystal era.... I realize this video was shot before Billy was born ?!!?

Charkha Spinning: Tips & Techniques is 75 minutes chock full of excellent information presented by Elaine Benfatto. One beginner who couldn’t figure out her holiday gift Charkha got an advance copy of the tape in progress and proclaimed it “Excellent! Perfect! I wouldn’t change a thing. Everything I needed to know was covered. She’s a fantastic instructor.” Elaine’s years of experience may also help existing Charkha users with discussions of fibers and fiber preparation, advanced and non-traditional Charkha fibers, trouble-shooting, positions, techniques for faster and more consistent throughput, and additional topics.
