Spinning Wheel Restoration Workshop
Have you inherited Grandma’s spinning wheel or bought one in an antique store and wonder if it really can work? Then you want to take the Spinning Wheel Restoration Workshop offered by the Black Swamp Spinner’s Guild (Ohio). In this class, you learn how to clean dust, dirt, and mouse droppings from the surfaces, hydrate your wheel, remove pegs without damaging the wood to check for needed repairs, inspect the tension device and mortise, service the flyer, lubricate what needs to slip, and put it all back together. Minor repairs are completed in class, and discussion of major repairs takes place with recommendations given to complete them.
