    My sister wants a spinning wheel for Christmas - does anyone have any suggestions of where to buy a wheel in Ontario?

    I've always had good luck (and lots of fun) searching through antique stores. My main quest is for old, servicable tools, but i've seen various spinning wheels. Albeit, I am living in Alberta, but i'm sure there are lots of antique stores to be found there in Ont. There are quite a few scattered around the Niagara region.
    Well, there used to be. :rolleyes: I haven't lived there in 22 years.

    Yup (Ford Majors SIL is my wife) got hers at Janes sheepish things clcik here had the best delivered price at the time for an Ashford traveler. Ms Van Arnehern was great to deal with. For Ashford dealers in canada click here Ann (my wife) gets supplies etc. from the Mississippi Black Sheep Co. too (check for her listing on the Ashford page) and again can highly recomend.
