I'm a Happy Girl

I went to a huge market this morning and found this Ashford's Wheel ,I got it for $40.00 which is a bargain and its in perfect condition, so now all i have to do is learn how to use it properly. I'm so excited lol


  1. Oh WOW Karen - no wonder you`re a happy girl! Id be positively ecstatic, what a BARGAIN!

    I found The Joy of Handspinning website really usefull when I was learning as there are lots of videos (Im completely self taught on a wheel). I brought my wheel from an experienced spinner on one of my yahoo groups; she told me to pace myself by singing `row row row your boat` to myself as I was spinning, and treadle to the rythm & I really found that very helpfull to do.

    Good luck with it - have fun & if you need any help / advice you`re always welcome to email me, though Im faaar from an expert :o)


  2. Awwww Deborah thankyou so much, i've been really wanting one for a while but there so expensive so when i found this complete and perfect it was a must have lol I had a practise last night and loved it although things were a bit bumpy, but now i wont be able to get row row row your boat out of my head as i treadle away Thankyou hehe
    I'll have look for that website to thanks and if i do get stuck i'll holla lol
    Thanks so much again i really appreciate that
    cheers and happy days
