Hi, I just ordered a Mother Marion Spinning Wheel, and was just wondering if anyone else has one or has used one? Here is the link Cheesy It looks fun, I bought it cause I wanted something a little faster than my Hand drop spindle but not as expensive as a wheel right now Cheesy It was shipped out today should be here soon, so I will update in my blog and here when I get it Tongue!

Clever system, but from the pictures I always thought it was A LOT smaller - but the video shows how huge it is!
Curious to hear how you enjoy using it. Smiley

Hey all, sorry it took so long for me to reply! I have been busy, applying for summer jobs and taking the darn SATs and stuff but I came to tell you that it is MAGNIFICIANT!!! Just like the spindle but faster, and it allows you to make boucle or coils and easy specialty yarn just like you would on the spinning wheel, the only differance is that it doesnt go through an orifice and wind itself on. This thing is HUMOUNGOUS! It weight 8 lbs. It's just all around fun and speedy, I am still getting a tab bit used to it but none the less I love it way more than a spindle. [Not bashing my spindle either I love it too Tongue] I have pictures!!! I will post them later tonight around 7:00pm EST or so, so check it out Cheesy And if I don't respond right away it's cause I'm doing something afterschool >_< lmao
            Thanks -Brandon-
p.s.- as if my friend didn't give me enough raw wool [8lbs.] she told me news today in my Latin II honors class that....she has 4 more lbs.!!!! I am going to the Maryland Sheep and Wool fest. and I am planning on getting some carders then Cheesy I have an SAT on the saterday but I am going after that, if anyone is going please let me know and we can plan a craftster meet up or something maby Cheesy I am going both days!
