I’ve agreed to demonstrate spinning at the Doc Holiday festival in downtown Denison this weekend.
I’ve been giving some thought as to which spinning wheel I should bring.
My CPW (Canadian Production Wheel) dates to 1870 – 1890. However, the likelihood of it actually making it to north Texas in that time period is pretty remote. Then too, it is in need of some repairs.
My Appalachian Great Wheel is both the right period, and more likely to have made it to north Texas. It needs even more repairs than the CPW
So I think the best wheel to bring is my Jensen. The design is a variant of a CPW, and i am spinning a more appropriate fiber for north Texas. I’ll be bringing a few spindles with other fibers for discussion.
