Projects, Tutorials, and News
Schacht Spindle Company was founded to support spinners and weavers. For over a decade, we've offered a free newsletter with projects, techniques, and more. Whether you're a beginner or an old hand, you'll find helpful tutorials, projects you love, and Schacht news here!
Where Do I Find Things?
On our old website, all newsletter content lived on one web page. We're currently setting up different places so you can find things more easily:
- Projects and Tutorials includes free stuff—projects, spinning how-tos, and weaving tutorials.*
- News includes everything else—fiber arts articles, announcements for products and events, and more.
- Archives contains vintage posts about older projects, office challenges, or design inspiration.
*Since 2022, we've put out calls for projects and tutorials. If you're interested in designing a project or writing a tutorial, see Submit a Project for more information.
