Spinning Wheel

11 Jan

I might have mentioned to my sister, who goes to a lot of auctions, that I would like a spinning wheel.  When one turned up, she asked how much I was willing to pay, and I told her.  Well, that wasn’t enough, but she kept bidding and paid the difference.  I do appreciate my sister.

She even delivered it for me!

I know nothing about spinning wheels, but it looks pretty.

I did see it is missing a little leather piece, and it seriously needs oiled.

I think I need some expert help.  Sky is trying, but he doesn’t seem to know much about spinning wheels either.  He does pretty good at cleaning though.

    It looks to be in fairly good shape, your local spinners and weavers guild probably has a list of people who can help you get it shipshape.

    What a beautiful old spinning wheel! It would be fantastic to know more about it. Do you plan to try to learn to spin?
