Bonus content: frequently asked questions fielded by the Alden Amos and spinning maven Susan Druding; also the author's highly opinionated description of the ideal spinning wheel. Must-have reference material for spinners at every level of skill and experience.

spinning wheel primer Review by innes carmichael

A fantastically useful primer. Full of clear and well thought out illustrations showing just what you NEED to be able to see. A very useful help when reviving or repairing a wheel-or simply giving a wheel a tune up so it is working at its very best.
