Spinning Wheel repairs & bobbin services
As of 1st July 2018 we are not taking on anymore repairs for wheels other than requestes for spare bobbins as we have a full workload and we are retiring November 2018. We are accepting the last bobbins in for replication at Fibre East and between 1st August to 15th August. Then we must concentrate on the last of the Timbertops wheels we are making. Outside of these times phone us and we will see if there is any chance of fitting you in. Basically we shall be closing completely on our return from the York Guild on 19th November 2019
Of course we will still try to provide spare parts for Timbertops wheels until our retirement
Please note -Handcrafted wheels are often worth the cost but sometimes Handmade wheels are more often Spinning Wheel Shaped Objects.
Beware of 'Bargain' spinning wheels which are missing their Flyer/Whorl/Bobbins these can be very costly to make and are then NOT the bargain you first thought they were!
We get a lot of lovely comments from many of our customers, here is one of the latest ones
"The spindle, whorl, and bobbins are a perfect match to my Shetland
and the work is beautiful. The whorl you recommended is exactly
the size I needed and I have a bobbin of BL fleece spun up.
I am so pleased with your work and excellent communication. It has
been a pleasure dealing with you and I will certainly recommend you
to anyone needing repairs. Thank You!"

2012 beat the previous record with parts of a spinning wheel being, remade & repaired for a new customer in the Falkland Islands
It has been amazing how far wheels have travelled to us during 2010 and 2011.
We have arranged for our carrier to bring them in from across England and Wales but then an Owner bought her wheel to us from Lakeland but a short while after another Customer made an appointment with us to bring their wheel from west of Glasgow! it was lovely that they had enough confidence in our abilities to repair their wheel to travel that distance......
Also in 2011 we have had items for repair sent to us from the Netherlands and also USA.
