Careful, spinning wheels are addictive!

I really love my double treadle Traveler - I have a jumbo flyer for it.

I got rid of the cotton drive band and switched to a more elastic type band (pony bead lacing from Wally world - shhhh!) and found out I really don't need a lace flyer!

Picked up an antique Irish style saxony style wheel a few years ago. It's more for show than for spinning since I have just one bobbin. This past spring got into a silent auction at a fiber fest & picked up a 70's era Ashford Traditional - tried my Traveler bobbins on it and they fit!
