TestimonialsOne of the joys of making these items is the many e-mails of thanks and appreciation
I receive from my customer. To you and all my customers, my heart felt thanks.
I received the bobbins in the post at lunchtime and can confirm that they are a joy to use as well as looking very beautiful. Thank you also for the extra ebony one, very kind of you. My cheque will be posted tomorrow.
Just to let you know the tapestry bobbins arrived on time and in good condition. They are very beautiful, thank you. I especially love the Mexican rosewood, it has lovely grain markings, and they are so smooth.
The spindles just arrived, and I whipped them out of the package and couldn't resist having a very quick twirl. Wow.
They seem, without extensive testing, to be spot on! And they look simply gorgeous, as well. I particularly like the one with the band on the rim.
the spindles arrived this morning and they are beautiful - thank you so much, I am delighted with them.
thank you very much for the spindle which arrived yesterday. It is quite lovely and need to get organised to fine something to spin with it.
Just to let you know that the spindles arrived safe and sound. They are beautiful. Thank you.
I received the two baby spindles today. They are truly lovely. I've given them a quick test spin and they spin beautifully. I'll spend more time with them later in the week and provide some comments. These are spindles I'll use all the time!
the package arrived past week: thank you!
Hope to deal with you again.
Have a nice day :)
Fantastic, thank you very much!
Thank you very much, the bobbin has just arrived, it is beautiful,
looking forward to working with it.
The bobbins arrived during my 'Home workshop and were received with enthusiasm.
I only allowed the students one each as my other group was waiting .
Thank you so much for the beautiful snakewood bobbin. I am awaiting comments from students as to how they like using the non metal tipped ones. They have such a fine finish.
Thanks also for the extra tipped ones in the order - all much appreciated.
And I shall be really glad to order via e.mail then I can put in a decent order.
May everything continue to go well for you,,
All the best,
the spindle arrived today and I'm totally thrilled. Its a beautiful piece of art and spins like a dream. I'm a quite new spinner, but on this spindle I can spin fine (of course, light as it is) and much more consistent yarn than on my heavier beginner's one. Thank you so much!
With kind regards
The spindle arrived safely today. It is absolutely gorgeous and spins like a dream. I bought some pretty fibre today that it is getting acquainted with already.
We're still having nice weather here, but it will be a bit yet before our daffs peek out at us!
Thanks so much! I'm sure I'll be back in touch in future for more spindles.
I picked up my spindle form the Post Office today and it is wonderful. Is
was reading on Ravelry that you are working on another design of spindle
which I will be looking out for. It's great to be able to source expertly
handcrafted items in the UK.
It has just arrived and WOW - it is beautiful. Thank you very much and apologies if I have been a pain. You will be hearing from me again for another, but I will wait until they are on the website - give you time to breath !!!
Just to let you know that your beautiful spindle arrived today - and it is absolutely gorgeous! I am very very pleased with it and will no doubt order more in the future (this is my first one as I am a total beginner).
I can tell you that the spindle arrived today - and I'm absolutely
delighted! It's the most perfectly balanced spindle I ever got into my
hands! So it's possibly not the last I have ordered from you.
Thank you so much, and I'll stay in touch.
I am very happy with my banded spindle and it's exactly the weight I asked
for. I am a new spinner so I don't have a vast knowledge of spindles but am
very happy with the way your spindles are made and how they spin - very
helpful for a beginner to have a spindle that spins a long time!
The spindle arrived today, and I couldn't be happier with it. It is absolutely beautiful and spins wonderful, I'm so pleased.
The spindle arrived safely, thank you! It is very beautiful, and spins, as I expected, wonderfully.
The spindle arrived safe and sound today, and it's absolutely gorgeous! Thank you so much.
Just a short note of thanks for the wonderful bobbins & spindle, I was extremely impressed with the spindle apart from being very beautiful it spins great. I will have another look on your website and order a slightly heavy one over Xmas.
I look forward to ordering again soon and I hope you have an enjoyable festive season.
Just wanted to let you know that the spindle arrived Friday.
I'm having it for Christmas so I've only been able to have a sneaky peek but it looks gorgeous! - the Rosewood is beautiful thank you
Can't wait to use it
Many thanks, have a merry Christmas
The spindle arrived yesterday and I think its a lovely piece of work - it spins really well.
I love my spindle and the case with padding is a total added bonus, as now I can take spinning on holiday. Can't wait to get home to test it!
Many thanks, I received the spindle today. It's lovely and it spins beautifully
I hope you had a nice Christmas. The drop spindle arrived just in time - on December 23rd. I bought it for my mother for her Christmas gift and she loves it. We are American Indian and she dyes, spins and weaves fibre all the time. I often visit the UK and she really wanted a drop spindle from there. I just hadn't been able to find one while there, so I'm so happy to have found your site. She said your drop spindle is of extremely good quality and I think it is beautifully made. She is going to tell all her friends (that also spin) about your site. She is very pleased! Thank you so much!
just dropping you a quick note that the spindle arrived today. i gave it already a quick spin and i am loving it!
thank you, she is gorgeous and spins fantastic.
all the best,
Thank you very much for the bobbins, which arrived this morning.
I am very pleased with them and will recommend you to my students. If you have any promotional material I would be happy to display it.
I picked up my spindle today and I love it. Thank you for such a wonderful product. My next one will be the Ying/Yang.
Good afternoon Ian,
today there came my hand spindles. Only 4 days. This went really fast. I came just from the work and have been glad very much. I have spun the small spindle already with Tussah silk and she runs very well. Today with the bigger ones I will spin afternoon merino wool. They look fantastic both and feel great. The wood and the processing are high-class. A very nice work. These are not certainly the last spindles which I have ordered from you. I wish you all the best and kind regards.
I have just received my beautiful Oak Burr drop spindle & although I have only had it 10 minutes of course I have tried it out & it spins so beautifully & fine & goes on spinning forever!!!
I love it, & just wanted to pass on my thanks & I will post on Ravelry how good it is too & hope you get more business from spreading the word.
I'm sure I will be ordering again in the future too.
Just a quick question - do I need to "feed" the wood in the future with anything? - as I treat my spinning wheel with Danish oil occasionally.
I ordered two spindles from you this morning and am having a bit of a panic attack here. I wanted them notched and don't remember having specified this. Perhaps they are all notched anyway? I have been looking around for which spindles I would acquire next and completely fell in love with these rim weighted spindles when I saw a man from Ottawa, Ontario posted pictures on a Ravelry group. My search was over! They are absolutely beautiful. I look forward to many hours of spinning with them. Also appreciate your efforts to live lightly on the earth.
Thanks a lot, it got here and I love it. I have never had one before and I don't even know how to use it (got the book and lots of hopes that I will find the way to learn how to soon) but I am really excited about it, I am a musician and I have the same feeling for this tool that I do for my instruments, I will be showing photos in flickr and in my blog mentioning you if that's ok with you
Many thanks for the bobbins which arrived today – lovely as ever!
both spindles arrived today, and again I'm very happy with them.
Excellent balance, and spin forever. Thank you so much!
Thank you for the notification. I have been using my new spindle and it works beautifully :-)
The spindles arrived safely and are already hard at work. I had some merino-tencel blend in copper, lavender and peach just waiting for them. The walnut shafts are beautiful and they complement my other spindles nicely. They are lovely and spin wonderfully. Thank you so much!
Spindle arrived safely today, and it is beautiful!
The spindle arrived really quickly. It is very beautiful and I started using it right away. It spins a lovely, fine, even thread. I'm really looking forward to using it for my finest spinning.
Just to let you know my spindle has just arrived and I'm absolutely delighted with it - it's lovely to be able to experience such craftsmanship. I'm sure this won't be the last from you as I need a smaller, lighter one next.
The spindle arrived safely this morning and I've given it a test spin with some merino - perfect! I know she will love it, your spindles are really good spinners and look good and are so well made. Thanks again for all your help.
