SPINNING WHEEL RESTORATION AND REPAIR Top of Page
8

Does your wheel have "issues"?

Need extra bobbins?
Could your wheel use a "tuneup"?
Is there a spinning wheel in the family that needs repairs?
Have you inherited a wheel and need to have it evaluated?
 

Hans is available to asses your wheel - old or new. We don't charge to look at it. If your wheel needs repair or restoration, we'll give you an estimate. Since spinning wheels are not all alike, we need to see your wheel "in person" or some quality digital photos - including details of the flyer. Otherwise we cannot make an accurate assessment.

Located in downtown Fond du Lac - just off Highway 41 - at 25A N. Main St. Take the Highway 23 exit on 41, drive East on 23 until Main St. (Walgreens on the corner). Turn right on Main. The Woolgatherers is located across from Woods Floral between the Air Force and Marines recruiting offices.
Call 920-907-0510 during business hours for an appointment.

wheels.
