My mother, a trooper, volunteered/invited me to decorate a Christmas tree for charity. When we arrived at the expo center, I felt immersed in Santa's workshop. Christmas music floated over 2,000+ square feet of Christmas trees, gingerbread houses, and quilts donated by volunteers to benefit a local hospital. My experience as a temporary Christmas elf got me thinking: how would I decorate my own tree? Now, accidentally, I have the answer: I could print my own drop spindles!
Ta da! These pictures are of the Celtic drop spindle. I love the way it looks in the low holiday light. The spindles pictured above are in butterscotch. Our kits also include a 12" pine dowel and an optional hook. So, when your spindle(s) are done being Christmas ornaments, you can put them to use spinning during the cold, snuggly months that follow.
In honor of the days of light, we're running a 20% off sale that includes ALL of our spindles: Turkish, Celtic, Navajo, and Charkha. The sale runs from today, December 10th, to Christmas Day, December 25th. Keep in mind that your order, depending on your purchase time, may or may not make it to you before Christmas Day. (We're pretty speedy elves, as it were, but Christmas shipping times are generally slower.) Use the code HAPPYSPINNING20 to get 20% your spindle order.
As a reminder, if you'd like to print drop spindles for your personal use, our 3-D files are available FREE on Thingiverse. Merry Christmas!
