Spinning, the DVD

I bought this DVD, Start Spinning, with Maggie Casey and Eunny Jang. It is most instructive, it goes through all the basics about different kinds of fibre, how to draft in different ways and even a bit about carding. I finally understood what a long draw actually was, a technique I very much enjoy now that I know how, and I got really interested in the Schacht Matchless spinning wheel. This DVD is perfect for any spinner who, like me, does not have any one to learn from and to watch. 
And I must say that, as a bonus, Maggie and Eunny is so mild and friendly, the tempo so calm and the music so soothing that it is an exelent backdrop for a nap in the sofa.
