Today we got the bags! Theses bags are made of a good canvas with the cute sheep. I love them. All the people who will be attending the Spring Retreat get one of these to hold all the fiber I will be flinging at them. the others will be available for sale in the shop and online for a mere $18! True story. I’ll post them later today if you want to order one.
Even more exciting! Majacraft did a bit of a redesign of their wheels. I LOVE it. Let’s just first talk about things that may not be obvious.
The bolts that hold the body to the base have changed to JCB Bolts and make the wheel so much easier to assemble for those people who may be buying this wheel unassembled.
The spinning head is also now held in place with a JCB Bolt so no bolts are protruding. This gives a smoother look and again, easier in assembly.
The way the bearing is being seated in the wheel has been improved and this improvement makes the wheel feel like it spins more freely.
The hinges on the treadles are now specifically made for Majacraft and they seem to move even more freely.
This is the new Rose imprint on the Rose wheel. I am in love with it. I think it is just gorgeous.
The treadles have been reshaped to give a softer look and also the size of the treadles is slightly different to give a better action (if that is even possible).
This is the back of the Suzi. This wheel used to have a cutout of the same shape attached to the wheel. The leaf design is now being etched into the wheel.
I have been in love with Majacraft wheels ever since I tried my first one more than 8 years ago. These changes have made me love these wheels even more. Before trying them out with the improvements I never would have believed that it was possible to make them even better as a spinning tool and the cosmetic improvements are just icing on the Majacraft cake.
We have more on order and more on their way shortly. These wheels seem to move through quickly since it seems that they are easy to fall in love with.
Keep watching. I have some things to say about Corriedale and Romney is in the works!
