    Spinning Cotton on the Charkha video

    Posted by Carol Hassell on Nov 7th 2022

    What a great video! I am new to charkha spinning and find this information from Eileen so very helpful. I'm using it as a tutorial to get myself familiar with this very different way to spin. Her explanations and demonstrations are excellent. Thanks!

    Charkha 101 is methodical, easy to follow and pleasant to watch. Just what I needed to start spinning.

    Digital Download review

    Posted by Eyejs on Feb 25th 2016

    Good information in this digital download. My charkha arrived a few days after I had downloaded this so it was great to watch it first and then re watch following the steps with the charkha. Haven't got to Part 2 yet. Would have appreciated being able to download more than once and have it on to more than one device ie tablet as well as desk top.
