WANTED:

  • Sue Payne from Conner Prairie is looking for several USED Ashford wheels   for new youth spinners.  If you looking to sell, contact Sue at    josucapayne@comcast.net.

GIVE AWAY = FREE:

 I have a large amount of alpaca fiber collected from 12 animals over two years, two of the animals are crias.  The animals were professionally shorn yearly and the fiber is very clean.  I have been looking for a buyer, but at this point I just want to make sure the fiber isn’t wasted, so if you or your group would be able to make use of it please email me back at pbarber119@gmail.com.      Being busy, I would appreciate it if anyone interested would be able to pick it up from me in Manteno, IL.

                 * FOR SALE, below *

Animals:

FLEECES:    free is above


Miscellaneous items:

This is a 1980’s era Ashford traditional jumbo flyer assembly. I am asking $40 for it. It is in good condition. The wood needs to be conditioned (it is a bit dry from age) and the bobbins need a bit of glue to snug them up. Please email kaitlynpsmith@gmail.com for more info.

Description of what you want to sell: Fleeces, Roving, Spinning Wheels – Yardsale

Well, it’s finally happened. I’ve accepted the fact that I will never spin all of the yummy fibers I have accumulated over the years. I would like to rehome most of it. Some of the fibers are more than 10 years old, but have been kept in conditioned space.

I also have an abundance of spinning wheels and would like to thin the herd. I am not trying to make money, but would like to recoup a small portion of what I have spent over the years. I am trying to gauge the level of interest in having a fiber garage sale. I am located in Columbus, Indiana.

Please reply to me at dktotten@gmail.com.

Thank you!
