The Ladybug is in!

Happy Wednesday!  The Schacht Ladybug spinning wheels have arrived!  The Ladybug is Schacht's entry-level wheel for the spinner who wants to get spinning but can't afford the price of most wheels.  Each Ladybug wheel is unique - somewhere on each one is an enamel ladybug, and each wheel's ladybug is in a different place.  This wheel comes with 3 bobbins, medium and fast whorls, threading hook, and a poly drive band.  It also comes with scotch tension, but can be set up for double drive.  Assembly is quick and simple, requiring only a Philips screw driver and a 1/2" wrench.  Other accessories available for the Ladybug include: Lazy Kate, high speed bobbin, and a bulky flyer package.

If you want a more versatile and sophisticated wheel, the Schacht Matchless spinning wheels will be here in about 3 more weeks. 

Also arrived from Schacht - niddy noddies that adjust from 1.5 yards to 2 yards; curved carders (72 psi), and belt shuttles for the Cricket Loom.

REMINDER: I am now offering an option to have text messages sent to your cell phone whenever I get something new and exciting at the shop.  Simply
Send:    txtrs  yarn
To:        368638
Then reply with a  yes   to the confirmation message.  For people who sign up for this feature there will be a 5% discount offered on whatever merchandise I sent the text about if you come in, show me the text I sent you and purchase it that SAME day.   For example, if you had this feature on your cell phone yesterday, you could have saved 5% on a Ladybug wheel.  That comes to about $35, or almost enough to get a Lazy Kate for the Ladybug.

FYI - Madelinetosh yarns now have a 10 - 12 week lead time for ordering.  I have an order placed, and it could arrive any time from now, but I am in the unusual position of having to re-order Tosh yarns before I receive my first order if I want more before Christmas.  If there is anything in particular you want from Madelinetosh, please let me know by the end of this week (Sep 16).

However, the Interlacements yarn order should arrive by Friday this week, and the Pagewood Farm sock yarns should also be here this week!

Purls of wisdom: never assume a determined kitten cannot escape from anything you use to confine him.
