OK...I don't actually have the wheel YET...I just won the auction last night and I am SO excited
I won an Ashford Traditional Single Drive, Single Treadle for $147 plus shipping which will be $70 from the Netherlands. It is missing a few parts (the drive band, tension screw, spring) but I know I can get those relatively inexpensively.
I am so excited to begin, but I don't know where to start. Does anybody know of a good website that can teach me the basics of learning to spin on a wheel?
Also, I plan to wait until I actually get the wheel before I order any parts because I want to make sure I get all the parts I need, but having never spun before, I'm afraid to miss something. I've got the list from the seller, but will it be obvious if I'm missing something that they didn't tell me about?
