Have you always heard about a certain type of wheel and are curious how it spins? Are you in the market to buy a spinning wheel, but aren’t ready to take the plunge?

Come out and try ours!

We will have over a dozen different types of wheels for you to try! We will have fiber for you to spin, as well as information print-outs on each wheel so you can add your notes as you move from wheel to wheel.

Confirmed wheels:
Ashford: Kiwi, Traditional, Traveler, E-Spinner
Blue Bonnet: Honeybee
Electric Eel: Nano
Hansen miniSpinner
Kromski: Prelude
Lendrum Original: standard flyer and Woolee Winder
Louet S15
Majacraft: Suzie, Aura
Merlin Tree: Hitchhiker
Schacht: Ladybug

Please note – we will all be spinning onto shared bobbins and your spinning will not be able to be pulled off of any wheel when you are finished.

Out of respect for those who are allowing us to try out their wheels:
no spinners will be allowed to spin while wearing shoes.
For sanitary reasons, please wear socks while spinning.

Space is limited to 24 ‘tasters’.

Cost for this event is $10.
