I was merrily spinning away on some BFL that I got from Heartknits Handpainted, and all of the sudden my treadle hit the floor!
The part that connects the footman with the treadle broke:
Luckily the phone number and address for Fricke is still on the wheel, so I promptly pulled out my phone and called them.
The very nice woman who answered the phone took my contact info and will be sending a replacement piece. Hooray!
Now I just have to wait to finish spinning and plying that yarn. whine!
