A friend of mine has a spinning wheel that his late father made that he wants to place with a good home. Gather it is a good design, but have no idea if it works, it was just a wood work project for a retired craftsman.

I was caregiver for a Mr. Jim Hinde, whose previous wife Kathleen was an avid weaver/spinner. Jim passed on himself in May, and has left behind the makings for (what I believe to be) three looms. A bit of a jigsaw puzzle, but there seems to be a set of plans for one of them, which might help out by process of elimination. I am looking for a good home for these (all or nothing, I have to add).

I have Zephyr (wool/silk blend) yarn.
I need some of it overspun to make 2 collapsible weave scarves.
My estimate so far is approx. 1700 yds overspun per scarf.
I would like to start the warp in July after the ANWG conference.
Are you willing to spin the yarn for me?
Please contact: Caroline, phone : 250-383-0636,

I have a small hobby farm in Metchosin, with three alpacas and one pet sheep. I have a large amount of brown with with white flecks rovings (alpaca 70% wool 30%) for sale. This was processed by Saltspring Wool Mill, and was probably some of the last work they did as they have sold their machines. No chemicals, except soap, and no dyes used.
I need help to use my alpaca rovings! I am happy to donate some to the Guild or individuals for test samples of yarn or felt or what have you. Please call Sandy at 250-478-5334 or email Sandyfirstname.lastname@example.org
