Hi, just found this by chance on the web. I make spinning wheels in the Scottish Borders and would like to make contact with Magnus'S Apprentice to swop stories and construction querries.

Illustrations show high quality craftsmanship

Well, I came back to look at Kim's pictures again, and I still can't figure out how she managed to hide all my mistakes. :)... must be great photography. :) I was certainly surprised to read all the comments! Much thanks to Kim for being so encouraging, supportive and trusting.

I have to thank you, Kim, for bringing your wheel to SOAR. I saw your wheel and RAN to your booth. Having been on Magnus's waiting list for years, I was thrilled when you told me Tom Livernoir was taking orders on them. I'm happily on his waiting list and owe it all to you. THANK YOU!!!!! Blessings, Lynn


oh kim, what a beautiful post; i'm glad you got a little consolation prize for missing rhinebeck. i hope you spent lots of time with your new wheel over the weekend.
we really REALLY missed you at the fair; you can't stay home next year!


Such exquisite pictures! You did the wood perfect justice. It really is karmic, isn't it? I'm just starting to understand that better.


Wow wow wow! Your wheel is breathtaking!
It was a thrill to see Laurie's wheel on Friday :/)


I'm jealous. I just started spinning with a drop spindle and have started looking for wheels. I am just now realizing how hard it is to find the right one.

The wheel is spectacular...and I don't even spin. Jo


Beautiful wheel. Beautiful quote.


Believe me, I could hardly speak when I saw the wood. Incredible. Tom was very nice and thrilled to be showing off his wheels.


I still have my blinders on in regards to spinning, myself, but I can still recognize and appreciate beauty... right there! It's lovely, Kim. And love the story of how you all met. ; )

Wool Winder

It certainly is a beautiful wheel! How could you possibly resist?


It's easy to see how beautiful the wheel is and why you and Laurie needed to own one. You have a lovely collection, not a sickness, it's a true love of great spinning tools (and beautiful home furnishings). ;-)


Love. Love. Love. She's a real thing of beauty alright. Enjoy her! I saw that post Tom left you and wondered what would come of it. Very, very happy that you now have one.


It's a gorgeous wheel, Kim, and I can see why you fell in love with it. The wood! Oh, the wood! Enjoy.




Enjoy, enjoy! I'm glad to see you post this, I hope Tom gets a lot of new wheel orders.

I pulled my Drudik out of its long hibernation finally and am spinning again. It was a long hiatus, waiting for the babies to get a little older, but now I have a precious few minutes every few days to spin. I am also knitting up yarn that you dyed... So wonderful to feel fiber in my fingers again.


Oh, Kim, I'm gasping....this wheel is magnificent! Can't think of anyone who deserves it more! (I did "know" another Magnus Drudik wheel...that one belongs to the woman I used to call my mentor. However, she took an attitude when she learned that I bought my Schacht Anniversary wheel from YOU...my mentor no more! On the other hand, you are now my HERO!) Enjoy every minute you spend on that treasure! (Yes, I know there are a lot of exclamation points...that's the way I feel about this post.)
