We have an Isle of Wight based site similar to eBay, unimaginatively called Wightbay. I placed a Wanted ad on there a couple of days ago for a spinning wheel.
Yesterday I received a call from Tina who said she had an Ashford Traditional available and did I want it for.......wait for it..............£75!!!!
I was gobsmacked and immediately thought there was something wrong with it, so dropped loads of hints to Joy who offered to come and have a look at it with me.
We went over today and Joy pronounced it "Very nice!"
So I bought it!!!
When I got back to the car, Joy told me that I could open my birthday present (look carefully in the bottom right hand corner of picture). THREE bags of fibre!
So I've bought it home, unwound the bobbins which had something smelly and disgusting on them, washed the bobbins and the Lazy Kate and now I'm just waiting for it all to dry so I can have a go!
