Taking a Spin Around the Museum

This Saturday I will be off to my first event of the year! It’s just a short day trip to the Queensland Museum where I and a few ladies will be assisting with the behind the scenes tour of The Medieval Women as part of the Medieval Power exhibition. I shall be demonstrating spinning 15th century style with a distaff and handspindle. We shall also have demonstrations of goldwork embroidery, Illumination and a talk about the very secret sex lives of medieval women. So for those located in Brisbane, Australia, please feel free to drop by!
