At Spinolution we like to think that our community of dealers is one of the reasons owning a Spinolution Spinning wheel is so exciting. While you may buy a wheel from any dealer online by using our Dealer Map we would love the opportunity to highlight some of our wonderful dealers who may be in your area to help you get better acquainted with our wheels and immersed in your local fiber arts community.
Where are you located and what do you love about the fiber arts in your area?
I’m located on an acerage outside of Ames, Nebraska. I’m blessed to have a lot of
really wonderful fiber art enthusiasts in my area! There is an active spinning and
weaving guild in Fremont, NE only 12 miles from me, Omaha, Ne has an active
weaving and spinning guild which is only 45 miles from me and I often enjoy the
Grand Island and Hastings NE spinning and weaving guilds which are 2 – 2 1\2
hours drive from me! Those two guilds are huge demonstrating and teaching at our
What inspired you to start your own fiber arts business?
I saw spinning done during the Natural Fibers section of my Textiles class in college. I
had learned how to knit and sew in 4-H when I was 7 years old. I was mesmerized by
the spinning demonstration in my college class and knew I would learn how one day. I
saw a spinning wheel at a county fair when my three kids were young. I got online and
learned all I could. I finally asked where I could find spinners live and in person. They
said to go to my State Fair! That was August of 2000. I got started with a drop spindle,
bought my first spinning wheel a few months later, an angora rabbit the next June. I’ve
had alpaca, a llama, colored and white Corridale sheep Babe and Spin-o-lution spinning
wheels! I love to teach people to spin their own yarn!
What is your favorite feature of Spinolution Spinning wheels?
I love how easy and effortlessly they are to treadle. I love the funky designs, how
the footman move and that they are made in the USA. I also love the different
sized maidens and how easy they are to switch out.
Which is your favorite wheel if you could only choose one?
The Echo! I have the 4 oz maiden and the 16 oz maiden. I also have 8 oz
bobbins I use. I have the lazy kate and skein winder. I can make any grist of
yarn I want with my Echo!
What other hobbies or interests do you have outside of your business?
I knit, crochet, quilt, show rabbits, I’m a Ruby Ribbon Stylist, Usborne book
dealer, DoTerra Essential Oils consultant and Amway distributor. I also help my
daughter with her Prom and Bridal tailoring business “Stitches by Salem”.
How long have you been a dealer?
Since June of 2018
If you could give one piece of advice to new spinners or fiber enthusiast what would it be?
Be patient with yourself! As adults, we forget learning is a process
and get too impatient with ourselves. Spinning is very kinesthetic! Your body
needs to learn to coordinate many different processes. Practice 15 minutes
every day. Walk away if you start to get frustrated and come back to it later!
One day, it’ll just click for you! You’ll be SO GLAD you hung in there!
