I just aquired my eighth wheel a month ago-a custom built number made in 1983 by D. H. Trevor who I have never heard of and find no info on when searching the internet. It is a handsome devil and an awesome spinner. So...eight wheels, only three cats. I'd say I need to get some more cats!

Vi, that's where we ordered ours and it shipped the day after we ordered - should be here by Thursday. I think that's very good. Did they send you an email confirming shipment?

( no kidding I almost cried)

but that they had a floor model for 10% off if I wanted that one
I said yes

how many bobbins shipped with yours? if you don't mind me asking


vi

No idea how many bobbins - but it better be the same as I've seen on all the other sites. Certainly that's standard. (Caseysmom got one from Webs, too, and she has hers already) Should get the bobbins and the lazy kate and whatever else it normally ships with. I've never seen one advertised as JUST the wheel.

I'm so sorry they ran out of dt's just when you ordered yours but the 10% off is good (especially when they were one of those who had the lowest prices to begin with). You should get a tracking number so you can watch it wing its way towards your home. I'll let you know when we get ours.

I ordered some fiber, too, that should be here before Christmas and we're going to stop at a Borders on our way home from work one night this week so I have some idea of what to do with everything. I hope everyone is available over the holidays cause I have a feeling I'm going to have a ton of questions :(

Vi, I just posted a question to Caseymom and elsie99 (who also got wheels from Webs) under "Wheels coming!" asking what came with their wheels.

Yes I saw that.....
I am assuming it does.... or we'd have heard..someone would have posted.

and don't be sorry for me, I am thrilled!.....I got 10% AND a wheel I have wanted for over a year....
broken in no less.

after 10 minutes here with MR thaddeaus peabody....it will have that 'time worn patina' and a few tooth marks.....

plus,
it will be dragged through pastures and barns ( my spin group spins at farm tour....)

Yikes! Webs is out of Lendrum DT's already! I do hope that box sitting upstairs is a DT (it says WEBS on the box and I asked dh for it for Christmas). They had a good price, I figured they would sell out sometime before Christmas. Hey, an extra ten percent is awesome! I'm sure you will be getting your new toy soon.

Are you all trying to tell me that this wheel may be my first, but not my last??? Sounds like "you can't stop at just one"........
