Isn't She Lovely?

This is my brand new, well brand new to me anyway, drum carder. Now I need to learn all about making batts. If any of you have tips, tricks, instructions, books to recommend, an accessory I simply must have , and/or any other suggestions to benefit a novice carder, they would be most welcome.

She is a Fricke, now made by Strauch.

  2. congrats on the drum carder....my tip is just crank slowly and make sure your fiber is at least a little pre-drafted and don't let big clumps of fiber through at one time. You'll get the hang of it in no time!!

  10. My name is Marilia, I am Brazilian and I love crafts, handmade art.
    I created a blog about general topics. It's for those who like to write, speak, express opinions on various topics. I am new to the subject, I am still learning ... I have visited some different blogs and found yours. I hope to exchange information. In Brazil, there are many artistic expressions. Many people think that there is only Carnival in Brazil, but there are a lot of good, interesting people with something to offer. It is a hospitable country, friendly and very cheerful, but also knows how to treat things seriously. Visit us when you can! Ah ... excuse me for my english ... I'm using "google translator" hehehe. I have some very dear friends American Family Dugan, Minneapolis, Minnesota. They live in Brazil for over 30 years, but every year they go to the U.S., visiting his family. Hugs to you all!
