15 years (about) since she has wanted to learn to weave.( and now she has a chance.)
SPINNING AT SAORI SANTA CRUZ
Using hand spun yarns in your Saori weaving is very cool and expressive. Some wonderful saori weaving done by a student /friend who spins her own weft yarns regualrly .She is spinning now on the louet s 90 wheel to make her amazing yarns. She then sews her hand woven hand spun fabrics into unique garments.
There is something about those Louet LE s90 spinning wheels that is just right. I was disappointed that they did not manufacture them any more BUT this year Louet made a very small LIMITTED run of them, the first is 20 yrs. I had purchased one 14 yrs ago used, and have really loved it to spin and teach with it. Other wheels have come and gone, but this one remains a favorite.
I have two of these special edition LE s90's that I ordered and they have arrived and are now available for sale. One has sold ,info where to buy a louet LE s90 in my etsy shop an yes, I ship , or come by the studio to test drive. The TWO following photos are from a customer who sent them to me she just recieved her LEs 90 wheel two days ago. She wrote to me to say how much she loves it.
I wanted to tell you too as a selling feature of the Louet is that nothing has to be removed. Plus I swear its lighter weight and less bulky than my lendrum. So for travel with the lendrum I have to unscrew the head,put that in my bag or basket. Unscrew the treadles and fold that up. It's a hassle to remove the head. With the Louet is super simple. You can use my happy customer feedback anytime. I feel fortunate to have been able to order one of these from you of this very limited edition wheel." S
