This blog post is mostly intended for my own memory, having a Persian persona, I would like to spin my yarn on drop spindles the way that my persona would have done. However when I spin my "Persian" yarn I'm out at events and away from my resources. So I'm posting this here to pull together a few different bits of information that I can easily look back at before going to events.

http://www.en.neulakintaat.fi/I love weaving and weaving will always be my first passion. I have gotten to the point where most of my weaving is not portable, it takes a day to break down the drawloom. :) We, as a family, travel a lot and I need to be creating regularly. I do love drop spinning, but it is not good to be doing the same movements over and over all weekend long. So I've been looking for other portable fibre arts, enter naalbinding. I have know of naalbinding for a decade. I have tried to learn naalbinding several times.
