I crossed paths with KnittinDeb, author of the NeedleWerks blog, in one of the spinning groups on Ravelry. She mentioned that her husband makes replacement bobbins for her Louet spinning wheel. Not-so-long story shorter, I bought 2 of his handcrafted bobbins for my spinning wheel. Aren't they pretty. He did a great job. I am glad to have 'met' KnittinDeb and hope we keep in touch.
