Julia Farwell-Clay of Takoma fame came to The Spinning Loft with Kelly (who makes those spinning wheel cup holders that are on every wheel you see) for a Dream Wheel Weekend.
On Friday night Julia gave a talk with slide show that expanded on her wheel maker article in the most recent Spin Off.
It was called “I’m Not Dead Yet” or Custom Wheel Makers Alive and Well in North America. It was fun and informative and just primed the pump for what happened on Saturday.
We got to spin on a whole bunch of wheels by custom wheel makers. Yes, we did. I have the proof in pictures.

Magnus Drudik 28" Castle Wheel - I tried to keep it, but Kelly said no
It was an amazing experience! I fell deeply in love with the Drudik wheel, the Cooper and the Watson. Thanks to Julia and Kelly for sharing their treasured wheels with us.
