Wheel Disaster


My very portable and well traveled Minstrel (by car) was returning home from our holiday spinning Meetup group when I accidentally grabbed the cap where the distaff would go and the wheel dropped a bit. The flyer with the bobbin still on it flew to the concrete garage floor and the edges of both sizes of the whorl are cracked and ready to snap off. :-(

The first thing I did was email Tim at New Voyager to inquire about replacement parts, and the second thing I did was to glue on the distaff cap!
