Colonial Day spinning

I was demonstrating supported spindle spinning during Colonial Day fair in my elementary school. It was a lot of fun. Girls and boys (even more so!) were interested to see the tools and technique. I guess boys loved it because of an unusual tool.
I am wearing a Ukrainian folk blouse; it seemed a perfect fit for this type of event. A spinning wheel on a background is not mine; I only know the spindle...

Thanks my friend Vereteno for her inspiring online spinning lessons!
