OK wow thanks again! I got it to work now! The yarn wasn't spinning onto the bobbin and now I know why! My only problem now is that the wheel is hard to spin - I have to push it with my hand every time. But that may be because I haven't rubbed beeswax on my kite string drive band yet. Hopefully that will help it grab the bobbin and whorl.
And thanks for all the advice on actually spinning fiber! Still hasn't come yet, but now I feel like I won't totally destroy it when I try it out
Thanks! I will be referring back to this when it comes.
