Eileen Hallman is a knowledgeable spinner, weaver, and dyer, who specializes in cotton. She is the owner of  New World Textiles and has developed a number of products and tools for weavers and spinners, such as the shuttle pictured above, which is designed to hold a charkha spindle, so you can go directly from the charkha to the loom.

    What are the differences between beginner and experienced?

      Great question. For clarity, a beginner is someone who either does not know how to use a Charkha at all, or has done very little Charkha spinning. An experienced Charkha spinner is comfortable using a Charkha and does not need to relearn the basics.
