January 20, 2018

The Peachtree Handspinners Guild will meet Saturday, January 20, 2018, 1:00 to 4:30 pm in the fellowship hall of North Decatur Presbyterian Church (NDPC) (see map at right). The door will be open at 12:30 with the business meeting starting at 1:00. The program this month will be Dream Wheel-Go-Round.
In 2011 there was a Dream Wheel Weekend at the Spinning Loft in Michigan. It featured special spinning wheels loaned for the occasion. Spinners got to try out some wonderful wheels!
Miranda Hapgood has our own Dream Wheel-Go- Round planned for this month. Do you have a special wheel tucked away at home? Please bring it along so others can enjoy spinning on it.
The available wheels so far include:

  • Upright and Saxony-style wheels
    An early Alden Amos wheel
    A Shaker wheel made between 1793-1807
    A half-spoke wheel from Norway, made around 1870
    Napoleonic-era (1799-1815) wheel from Holland
    A Tiny gypsy wheel from Hungary
    A Carson Cooper Sabrina, inspired by a French travel wheel
  • Spindle Wheels
    Rio Grande—a treadled spindle wheel
    Walking Wheel made by Norm Hall
    Walking Wheel made by Lyle Wheeler
    Antique “scoop” walking wheel
    1790’s Virginia walking wheel

    Please plan to come and join the fun!
