Thanks to everyone for the excited well wishes on my new wheel. For those that have been asking, it’s a Rick Reeves. Not a Schacht-Reeves, but an actual Rick Reeves. I had seen this listed on the NETA Housecleaning pages but assumed it was already sold. Then on Saturday morning, Blogless Sharon came into the gallery and asked me if I had seen the wheel in the hallway. The one that was for sale. I said, nope. And she said, I think you ought to go take a look at this. I think it’s like the one you want. The one you tried out in Pennsylvania last November.
So, I went and looked and fell in love. I spun the stuff that was sitting by the wheel and then I went and got my own stuff to spin and that was that. Sold. Her name is Rosie and we’re going to have a very happy life together. If you want to see how totally excited I looked right after I bought her, take a look at this picture on Jackie’s blog. It captures the moment perfectly!
There was other stuff to buy at SPA, too. There was fiber. And roving. And more fiber. See?
Grafton Fiber. Yummm.
Indigo Moon. Llama Silk and Merino. And some Romney top that spins like a dream.
Spunky Eclectic. How can you not buy roving that’s called “Chocolate Covered Cherries”?
While it may sound like I was all about the shopping at SPA, there was so much more to it than that. Come back tomorrow and I’ll tell you about the people at SPA because that’s what made it really, really special.
