We love to trade.
I used to be a weaver. I have an eight harness Might Wolf that I haven’t used for years. It’s been hanging out at friend’s house just visiting.
Then another friend got bitten by the weaving bug, big time. “What would you want for your loom?” she asks. Offering just cash is boring, we decided a combo was in order.
You know how a spinning wheel can get stuck in you heart? I don’t need another wheel, but wow, this wheel waves to me, blows me kisses every time I see one.
So I tell her, “I’ve always wanted a Lendrum double treadle”.Â Cat out of bag, the words and wish set loose into the universe.
Last week she shows up at my door with a big box.
My new Lendrum
She found me a Lendrum. I don’t think the old owner used her more than once or twice. It came with the jumbo plying head , the fast flyer, a carrying bag and 9 (!) bobbins.
My friend will get her loom in early December.
And my new wheel? She spins just fine.
