The Wild Carder is the perfect accessory for the new "Freedom Flyer" that is a jumbo flyer with hoops instead of hooks to spin wild novelty yarns. Its now available for the Joy wheel (that would be my favorite Ashford wheel). I'll have my own soon.

Richard gave us a demonstration of wheel fixing and maintenance so that we can keep our customers tuned up and spinning on their wheels (whether they have Ashford wheels or another variety of spinning wheel).
I find the Ashfords are generous and positive even about their competition in the fiber arts world. They are a joy to work with. Plus they stand behind their products. While we were in the middle of our dealer's seminar Richard took a few phone calls from people who were having some problems with their older Ashford wheels. He coached them over the phone to fix the problem. What an amazing company! And they make amazing spinning wheels, looms, and craft supplies.
