A chance conversation, at last months WSD Guild meeting about spinning wheels and how I am waiting on a Majacraft Pioneer to be able to spin more comforatably.. I love my Louet S10 but being single treadle does cause me a lot of pain... so puts me off spinning as I do like to finish what I start!.
The lovely lady I was talking too has been spinning for a number of years and got what I was saying, and said she had a Peacock for sale.
This month she brought it with her and I feel in love with this cute little machine and its all mine! To be honest never gave having a motor to do all the hard work a thought.. feels some how like cheating lol and I do find not having to use my legs/feet kinda odd.. but good as I can stop when I want to.. not because I have too.

Its neat as you can control the speed with a dail at the front of the machine, or a sewing machine foot pedal which the lady had put on.
Theres about 40g on the bobbin and lovely having a effortless spinning session.
Well till next time.. Take Care x
