If you have purchased a spindle from Allen Berry, you know exactly what this means. Allen hand carves support and drop spindles with custom designs that are limitless, all you need to do is think it up and ask him. He has no website, no online shop, and no help - he runs his business solely from his Instagram account. If you want a spindle, you simply message him on Instagram and ask to be added to the list, which, at the moment, is 2 months out. I can honestly tell all you lovely spinners, it is definitely worth the wait.
Like most makers I have had the pleasure of getting to know behind the scenes, Allen is shy. He doesn't post much about himself, rather fills his feed with his magical spindles and spoons and positive energy.
