My friend Liz got a Hansen minispinner. If you are unfamiliar with spinning wheels (as, to my surprise, most of the world is), Hansen minispinners are electric. Running off either a plug or battery, a wee motor drives the flyer and bobbin — the whole contraption is treadleless, because you don’t have to treadle it.
But Liz still does.
(Sorry Liz! It was too cute not to share with the world!).
