I am selling a carder and spinning wheel for a friend. Neither she nor I know the value so I have turned to the Guild for help. Please contact me with offers or guidance. Harriet bought these things for home decor years ago and neither has any maker’s marks or information. The carder looks like a small run commercial product, it seems quite well built. The flyer has been repaired as shown in the pictures of the spinning wheel. There is no drive band on the wheel and it looks like it would use an old treadle sewing machine leather belt.

Please contact me by phone, text or email. I live in Esquimalt

2 ratio whorls
it has a new drive band on, plus 1 spare brand new
box Kate/ caddy
6 large standard bobbins
delta flyer
orifice flyer
bottle of Schacht spinning oil

I also have some of the non skid matting in Majacraft’s green and was going to use it for treadle covers which you can have.
I must mention that there are some small bumps on the treadles. I dropped a flyer on one when it was only a week old and could have cried! Hence making treadle covers. I always spun with either bare feet or socks.

Asking **$1400.00 obo in Canadian funds** for all mentioned above. I’m in Campbell River and prefer pick up please.
My wheel has the older style rose and was new in Oct 2006 and is #288 and signed by Glenys Poad on the bottom.
