to buy a ballwinder and swift? I am tired of trying to work around LYS schedule - plus new owners not really wild about having you in to do that.

Thanks!

I noticed them on ebay last night while searching for something else. x

Methinks I need this as a happy-halloween treat to myself - I will start stalking Joann's and wait until they go off sale so I can use a coupon!

I was going to say the same thing as silver. that's how i got my ball winder..
the swift though, i made myself by googling 'make a yarn swift'
(i made this one (http://www.craftydiversions.com/patterns/homemade_yarn_swift.htm))

however, i joined a yarn/stuff coop on yahoo and will be buying a table clamping, umbrella style, swift.

the one i have works great, but its kinda bulky and wobbly (i blame the manufacturer :shifty: )
