Looking for Indian Head Spinner

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Countryside : One Thread

I posted this on the barter board, but I received no response. I hope no one minds if I post it here. I am still hoping to find one.

I am looking for an Indian Head spinner to mount on a treadle sewing machine base. I cannot pay very much. Perhaps we can barter? I could trade handspun yarn, something handknit from handspun yarn, or if you have something broken, perhaps I can arrange to have it repaired...electronics or light machining...or let me know what you are looking for. I would also be interested in plans to make an Indian head bulky spinner.

Nancy, I understand these Indian Head spinners are no longer made but they were in vogue awhile ago when chunky yarn was in. I have seen them around here on the west coast of Canada and they are usually pretty cheap. Try locating some local spinners' guilds; they usually have newsletters with a classified section where you can put out the call. Good luck
