Free lesson with wheel purchase. If you already know how to spin, we show you how to use and maintain the wheel of your choice.
|NEW! SPINNING WHEEL RESTORATION AND REPAIR||Top of Page|
Does your wheel have "issues"?
|Need extra bobbins?|
|Could your wheel use a "tuneup"?|
|Is there a spinning wheel in the family that needs repairs?|
|Have you inherited a wheel and need to have it evaluated?|
Hans is available to asses your wheel - old or new. We don't charge to look at it. If your wheel needs repair or restoration, we'll give you an estimate. Since spinning wheels are not all alike, we need to see your wheel "in person" or some quality digital photos - including details of the flyer. Otherwise we cannot make an accurate assessment.
