Description

We have moved the wheel to the back of the upright. This makes changing the drive band easier as well as changing the Whorl. Treadling is smoother as well.

We have re-invented the wheel!! Our new "Patchwork Wheel" is designed to prevent warping. Four pieces are cleverly fitted together at right angles to each other creating the patchwork effect. Doing this has the grain of the wood running at 90 degrees to the other which is what will prevent warping. We still STRONGLY recommend that you finish your BumbleBee as soon as you can.

Acting on customers and dealers suggestions we have made some changes to the BumbleBee. We have replaced the metal hinges on the treadle pedals with leather hinges. These work smoother, do not require frequent oiling to prevent squeaks, and keep the pedals in alignment better. The height has also been increased by 1 in to allow for our jumbo bobbins to work on this spinning wheel. In addition we now put the company logo on the treadle pedals. The logo can also mean BumbleBee as well as BlueBonnet

You don't have to invest a fortune to learn to spin. This hardworking no nonsense spinning wheel is ideal for beginners. Intermediate spinners will be pleased with its 2 spinning ratios. This was designed to be primarily a beginners wheel at a price no one we have been able to find in the world can match for a new, solid hardwood, spinning wheel.

As with all our spinning wheels, the BumbleBee is made from solid hardwood. These are made from red oak. The spinning wheel has been sanded smooth and is ready for you to apply your choice of finish. Wax, Danish Oil, or varnish will bring out the natural reddish color of the wood and really make the appearance of the grain show. We have found that Danish Oil is the best.

The wheel axle is on two sealed bearings for ease of treadling and the flyer axle also has two bearings for quiet operation. The bobbin is also on two sealed bearings for quiet operation. No other wheel offers sealed bearings at this price!

We do not use plywood or MDF on our spinning wheels. We want our wheels to be heirloom quality spinning wheels that will last for generations to come.

As a new spinner I was very excited to receive this wheel. The video was excellent for assembly and getting started. Make sure you watch it when you get it!! (I had scotch tension problems that would not have been an issue if I had paid attention to the WHOLE video :))
I've been able to spin on it almost daily since I got it. Wonderful purchase. No regrets.

My Bumble Bee Spinning Wheel arrived on time and perfectly packed. I used Danish oil and with it being Red oak wood it does take a bit more dry time, so don't panick. Super easy to assemble and the videos are fabulous. I thought it would be like riding a bike starting to spin again but it was hard for me and here is why. I have a closed head injury and have had to relearn a lot! But my snag was the roving; I had always used hand carded wool years ago. The roving you need to test the draft as they are all different and some almost felted and very difficult to work with. I found a local lady with sheep and her roving is fabulous! That was my break through. I also found a video on the best twist and what was over spin. Now I am happily spinning and I just love the wheel.
