A Bliss-Full Day!

In the Wiltshire village of Great Somerford, four Blisses and five owners got together for a meet up! (I had flown down so didn’t have a wheel with me.)

In the morning we had a great time talking about our wheels…

… investigating the one double treadle…

Then in the afternoon we had given an open invitation to spinners and would-be spinners in the area to come along. So there were more of us spinning!

There were also two brand new spinners, both of whom did extremely well…

Rob Harvey of the Pickwick flock of Cotswold sheep came along with some fleeces. The one nearest the camera will be starting its journey to Orkney on Monday!

I have my home-bred chauffeur-cum-gofer with me, son Nick. Any photos which include me were taken by him (thanks, Nick).

As well as the Blisses, we had a variety of other wheels, including a couple of electric spinners.

It was a good day with plenty of laughter. My thanks to all who came and made the day go with a swing!
