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

If you want to learn how to spin on a Charkha, you need this item. Eileen is THE go to person for spinning cotton. Easy to follow, you won't be disappointed. I had a technical issue (on my end) Eileen followed up right away. Best customer service.

Awesome video and customer service

Digital Download review

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.
