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.
This is an excellent video with a lot of material presented at a pace easy to follow.
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.
No complaints here. Purchase was a smooth transaction, help was provided very quickly and video taught me a lot.
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.
