In Richfield, Spinning & Irish Music

In Richfield, Spinning & Irish Music

Deb Bruce was among spinners who demonstrated their skills this morning at the Richfield Springs Food Coop, to the rhythm of piped-in Irish music. Watching are Dan Sullivan, a food coop board member, and Ronda Morrison. Deb, who retired locally from Dartmouth, Mass., has been knitting with yarn she spins herself for a dozen years now. Ten years ago, she began raising her own sheep to provide the raw material. (Jim Kevlin/AllOTSEGO.com)
