A Spinning Wheel in Chevy Chase

fair1 [1600x1200]Not all spinning wheels in Chevy Chase are caused by snow on the streets.

The spinning wheel above belongs to Dr. Carolyn Hamm, of Silver Spring, pictured at left with her business partner, Ellen Apatov of Chevy Chase. Both of them are researchers at Walter Reed Hospital. In their spare time, they’re co-owners of a craft business, Hart Felt Fibers. Dr. Hamm, who’s spinning some yarn in the photograph, also raises silk worms at her home.

The two women were among several dozen artists and artisans displaying their wares Saturday at an arts fair at the Chevy Chase Women’s Club.
