I have just acquired an electric spinning "wheel". I've always rather thought it was cheating, but it arrived with a traditional spinning wheel I was given, along with the remnants of what I presume is an older electric one. The spinner has long since departed, and I'm assuming the person packing up the spinning things didn't know much about it, as there are a few bits missing, so I'm trying to put together the "jigsaw". I need a new belt to make the engine run the spinner, and wonder if anyone knows where to get one.

Does anyone have one of these and know anything about them. Thanks, Janet

I'm totally ignorant of spinning wheels, but I would suggest finding someone who deals in small electric motors. They should be able to advise you about the belt. The old sewing machines used to have a belt and there must be other motors that still use them.
Good luck,

Perhaps there is a spinners/weaves group in your area, that might have someone who could advise you on where to go for help.
Try you local information centre for the club details
can you spin straw into gold?

Rumplestilzkin! What lovely memories of my childhood fairy tale book with all those wonderful pictures. There was Shock Headed Peter, Rapunzel, and The Little Match Girl, all pictures still in my head after more than 55 years. Who says what we see in our childhood doesn't stick with us!! Poor kids of today who have to put up with cops & robbers, and reality TV.
