Cotton spinning made easy
I'm very happy with this how to spin cotton DVD. I watched the beginner section before setting up my charkha and was successfully spinning cotton only minutes after. Eileen is a wonderful teacher.
Spinning Cotton on the Charkha DVD
This is an absolutely excellent instructional DVD! I love the way that Eileen goes into the fine details of using the Charkha and she repeats information which helps a very beginner to really understand the process. Thanks so much for making this valuable instructional DVD.
I'm so happy that I chose this DVD. Eileen Hallman takes you from the opening of the Charkha, adjusting and using, to closing the box with patience and clarity. I wish that I'd had this DVD to view before receiving my Charkha.
