Hi. My girls, ages 16 and 18, have attended several meetings of the local spinning and weaving guild and really want to get into spinning.
They want an Ashford Traditional Spinning Wheel, but are considering getting it off of ebay - from New Zealand, btw, and we live in PA.
Is this a good machine to start with, and where can we get a good deal on one? New ones seem to begin at $320 (unfinished) and the "pre-loved" ones on ebay are around $200 plus shipping.
I was hoping to get a new one online somewhere for around $200, but that may be impossible.
Thanks for your help in advance.
