Mood board words – flyer-led wheel summer 2018
One of the most popular types of spinning wheels is the flyer-led wheel, also known as Scotch tension, so it’s time for PLY to really dig deep and meticulously cover this wheel. Do you know this wheel inside and out? Would you like to help others get to know their wheel? We’d love to hear from you. We want to start with general getting-to-know-your-wheel, care and maintenance, and how-it-works articles, but that’s just the beginning. We want lots of advanced articles and interesting experimentation. What happens when you change your brake band material? Your drive band material? What is the best way to spin the finest yarn possible? What about spinning thick on a flyer-led wheel? Do you change it for plying and how? Double treadle or single treadle and why? Is this really the best beginner wheel? Is it the best type of wheel in general? What is this style of wheel best at, and does it lag at anything? Is there any yarn or fiber you’d leave for a different wheel?
If you know this wheel, we want to hear from you. Let’s build the best flyer-led wheel issue around! Submit your ideas to firstname.lastname@example.org
Send your ideas, proposals, projects, and design proposals to email@example.com by June 1, 2017, and we’ll get back to you with a yes or no in July! Final articles and projects due by Dec. 1, 2017.
