Nancy, the best teacher is Norman Kennedy -- he has a DVD out on spinning. See if you can track down a copy of that and watch it. Norman is the consummate spindle spinner, having learned from old-time spinners in Scotland, the Western Isles, as well as the US; he was for a number of years the Master Weaver in Colonial Williamsburg, and certainly did a lot of hand spinning for use in his weaving. There are of course other spinners, but I can vouch for him, and his style of spinning is the way spinning was done historically rather than a "this is how I think it must have been done" approach. The type of spindle he uses is also historically accurate. Good luck!
