What are you most proud of? Diving in and giving it a try! Relaxing and enjoying the process. For a perfectionist that is a huge step.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Watch several videos on support spindling in addition to this class.There are many styles for drafting and spinning on a supported spindle. Watching the various videos gave me the options I needed to make it work.
