Last night Darren put my spinning wheel together correctly (When I put it together I had two pieces leftover—I was being frugal with the pieces, ha-ha.) I watched some YouTube videos last night and started practicing this morning while I listened to violin practice. It’s fun, but a lot harder than it looks.
My new wheel is an Edjammertje brand wheel from the Netherlands. I purchased it off ebay for a great price from a seller named Henri. He was super helpful when I messed up putting it together and his English is amazing.

Before you are ready to spin, you will need commercially prepared fiber, or you can prepare your own. I like the rolag video by Ruth Macgregor
