I am Karen Champion. owner of Blazing Star Ranch. I raise alpacas and have a fiber, yarn and spinning wheel store in Englewood, CO. I have been spinning for 5 years or so. I have used many different wheels and like different ones for different reasons.
I love the Spinolution King and Queen Bee's for their portability and small footprint. I think they are the ideal travel wheels, especially if flying! They are a breeze to set up. I like the ease of changing bobbins and the nylon pins instead of hooks!
One of my customers uses her Queen Bee to spin at the Denver Art Museum. She demonstrates spinning there on a weekly basis.
