Background on the wheel:
In the early 90s I was taking weaving classes at Mendocino college in Ukiah. A bulletin board in the class room had notices of weaving related things for sale. I responded to a notice of a 4 foot floor loom for sale in Redwood Valley. The lady said she inherited the loom from her mother and it also included the wheel. She had no interest in the loom or the spinning wheel and who ever bought the loom had to buy the wheel. So I bought both of them. I had the spinning wheel, built in 1975, for 30 years and never used it. I always admired the work that went into making the spinning wheel. So the wheel is 48 years old and “slightly used”.
A similar wheel is now for sale on ebay for $2,000.
