About the event

Distaff Day takes root in the old tradition where women returned to their regular household chores 12 days after Christmas. Distaff Day is also about commemorating and celebrating women’s work in the home. Spinning was very important in European traditions and throughout history. Today, while some might consider spinning  more of a hobby than a house chore, it is a powerful skill to have in your sustainablity tool kit. Sooner or later, 

Join us for a day of spinning fun on Sunday, 7 January 2024 in the gardens of The Lucky Ewe.  Bring along your spinning wheels or spindles, fibre and lunch. 

We will provide coffee/tea/cold water. This is a ticketed event, but only so we know how many chairs to set out. 

Bring a plate to share if you can. 


  • No ticket needed
