Wanted:
Hello, I’m a resident of Brighton, Colorado and I’ve been a crocheter/knitter for 4 years now, but I’m moving into spinning! I started on a drop spindle, purchased an antique wheel, and now I’m looking to buy a more modern wheel (prefer to keep the antique is quality shape…it’s a beaut!).

I’ve been looking high and low for a wheel for two weeks now with no luck. I was told that guild members often have wheels for sale, so I was hoping to see if any of your guild members may have a wheel they’re willing to part with that have the following qualities:

(Listed in order of importance)

1) capable of making fine to medium weight yarn
2) more than one bobbin, or can get one made easily.
3) $300- $400
4)double treadle
5)compact/easy to get away from kiddos
6)castle set up
