Have you ever wondered if you could justify getting another fiber tool? If you have, take a lesson from Heavenly Bresser in how to recruit enablers, choose your next acquisition carefully, and repair equipment in need of some love.

People used to ask Heavenly Bresser why she had 11 spinning wheels. Not any more. (For one thing, she now has 29—and counting—wheels.) Each one has earned its place based on historical significance, adaptation for a particular technique, or scarcity. But don't imagine that she has an expensive hoard gathering dust. Heavenly turns down as many wheels as she acquires, finds them at excellent prices, and restores them to working order. Along the way she's learned her way around textile history, wheel mechanics, and power tools.
