In the Beginning

Hi,  My name is Debi  Gajewski of the Story Spinners.  I am a storytelling for all ages.  I love being able to bring to the public stories for education and pure enjoyment.  I have a vast collection of stories from every walk of life.   I am currently working on a book of stories from my childhood....stories to tickle your fancy or bring sweet memories to the surface.  Through writing my stories...one of the stories about my ironing days provoked me to research and collect handkerchiefs.  I love the history about them and when you see the collection I bring it will thoroughly delight you.  There are hankies from all eras.  hankies to please woman as well as men and children.  I love putting together programs for various occassions. 
Please join me in my attempt to rejuvinate the word.....through stories.  Return to the days of old when Parents and Grandparents sat around the table or the proch and shared their history and tales.  Learn to tell some of your own. 
If you are interested in any of my programs or open events, sign up and be notified of upcoming events.  Sign up for a newsletter as well...Here I will keep you posted of things to do each month to help spread stories with your family and freinds.
