New Spinning Wheel!
It spins like a dream. It the one on the right with the aqua wheel. It folds up and comes with a carry strap so I can take it with me to guild and hopefully spinning classes someday.
The other wheel is my beautiful Majacraft Alpaca wheel (also from The Spinnery). She is my sole wheel - spins like a dream and just a little sweetheart. She does fold down and has a handle but she is heavy. A bit hard on my back and my hips trying to carry. She is a homebody and I guess her little friend will be the run around town girl..... They are bonding!
If anyone spins, weaves, knits or crochets - they need to make a trip to The Spinnery in Gatlinburg. Nancy is owner and she is wonderful. I have known her a few years now and I have been in her shop several times - never does she push or pressure you to buy even when I don't buy anything or just a roving to spin. She has let me try out wheels and spin for hours until find what fits me. I feel like I am with a friend.
Saundra is great - she is so helpful and fun. So talented! They are having alot of classes - worth the couple hours to drive there.
