Linda Ligon (inventor of the week), says it all:
And here we are, thirty years later, and it’s time to celebrate again. So take some time October 3-9 to honor our crafts. Warp your loom. Grease your wheel. Teach a friend to weave. Give a friend a book, such as Learning to Weave or Start Spinning or Weaving Made Easy. Take your spindle to the coffee shop and do your thing.
