Tumwater Middle School Teacher Seeks Spinning Demonstration

[forwarded by Larye: anyone interested in helpingĀ please request contact info by email]
To whom it may concern,

My name is Tyler Haywood. I am an 8th grade Social Studies teacher at Tumwater Middle School. I am one of two teachers who run the Homesteader program, which educates students on the life and times of the early Puget Sound pioneers. As part of this, we teach them hands-on skills.

Over the next three weeks, I will be teaching the girls how to knit and spin wool into yarn. Unfortunately, I do not know how to use a spinning wheel or a drop spindle, and the people who usually help us are not available this year. I understand that this is extremely short notice, but would there be any members of your guild willing and able to volunteer their time in my class? It would just be for two to three days, from 8:00 to 8:50 in the morning.

If this is not possible (and once again, I understand that this is very short notice), would next year be a possibility?

Thank you for your consideration.

All best,

Tyler Haywood
