Today, sitting on my front porch was a glorious sight. An Ashford Wheels & Looms box. Bet you can guess what was in it… Ta Da! A brand spanking new spinning wheel. An Ashford Joy Spinning Wheel. It was so exciting. I almost cried. Yes, I am a big spinning dork…I know. She is so very pretty! Check her out.
The wheel folds up flat for easy travels. Also has a build in lazy kate. Ashford is engraved on both sides of the wheel.
I love the way she spins too. No fussy treadles and slipping wheel. Just smooth, smooth spinning.
On a different note, just in time for Memorial Day, I am listing some Americana funky painted yarn. Very bulky and super unique. My mail was ever so exciting today. I had a couple cute things sent to me as a special thank you and this was one of them. Cute sticker!
I am working on my promotional goodies for the AREtsy Bags I am putting together to hand out as little freebies for all the folks who stop by the booth during Toad Suck Daze. I have several skeins of yarn that are too small to sell or some extra left over yarn from projects I have made. I am taking them and making them into super small mini skeins. Then I will add my business card with an Etsy discount code, for future shoppers. I can’t wait to see all the nifty goodies AREtsy members will be sending. I will be sure to take loads of pictures, so you can see the bags and goodies.
Here is a shot of my newest handspun yarn…Deep Calls to Deep:
I am so torn. I need to build up my inventory something crazy to have enough stock for Toad Suck Daze. I fear, my shop stock may be a little low over the next few weeks in my prep for the booth. I will list a few skeins here and there, but most of my items will be reserved for the big show.
So, here is my latest desire:
An Ashford Joy Spinning Wheel. I have almost bought it several different times. There are three different websites I have been considering purchasing this beauty from. Each offers different free incentives for getting the wheel from them. The incentives range from extra bobbins to free fiber. I am really torn. This wheel is amazing. It folds up and goes right into a cool travel bag. It fold up with the lazy kate still attached, so no removal of the bobbins is needed. Hopefully, it will be mine soon. I plan to have it before Toad Suck Daze to happily spin on, to show folks how The Twisted Purl product is born.
I best be off!!! Loads to do and the clock is ticking. Happy Crafting ♥
