This past Saturday, I attended a spinning event in Athens, NY that was hosted by my friend, Tina.  It was mainly for owners of Canadian Production Wheels but everyone was welcome.

(Tina and Jesh pictured above) We even had a less-than-48-hour owner of a new (to her) CPW!  Jess (on the right in the photo below – Yrallee is on the left) found her new toy just a day or so before our meetup!

I think we ignited some CPW lust in the hearts of the few who attended CPW-less ;o)

It was wonderful to see them grouped together

    I miss mine!!!! Well, it’s not mine anymore, which is why I miss it. But it was going to get damaged if I kept it. I was tripping over it routinely. Someday I hope to get another one. They are Wonderful Wheels! I love that picture of all of them lined up together. Glad you all had fun.

    Thank you very much for coming! I love seeing the wheels all together, and hearing our obvious admiration for those battle scarred beauties. We couldn’t have asked for a better day. :)

    I want one!
    I mean, they look like an art instillation all lined up like that. It must have been a wonderful day of spinning with the girls. Btw, I had NO IDEA our Jessica had one!

    When I was growing up, my great-aunt had a spinning wheel in her living room. Having looked at your pictures, if it wasn’t a CPW, it sure looked like one. She did not, as far as I know, spin — it was just something she had because it was pretty. When she died, most of her antiques (including the spinning wheel) that weren’t claimed by various family members were sold off. I was in eighth grade when she died, and had no interest in any of her household items…and now, as an adult, there are things I look back on fondly and wish I had. Including, now, her spinning wheel. Sigh.
