valtz 2Womack Butterfly Electric Spinner just arrived.  I’m loving it !!! But, it’s no lightweight and yet I want to travel with it and I want to keep myself organized.  The seller told me she has used a long handled plastic milk file crate to tote it to and from guild meetings and that she created a false bottom  with storage below in which to keep bobbins, cords and other accessories.  Local Office Depot is relocating and holding a blow-out sale so I stopped with the thought of getting one of those crates for cheap.  They were sold out but I found a lidded and locking portable file from Valtz.


frameMy DH (dear husband) built a frame from 1″ X 4″ lumber which actually is only a bit taller than the 3″ diameter bobbins.  And I sprayed it with flat black paint.

DH cut a “lid” for the “hidden” compartment from 1/4″ plywood paneling.   It was oiled and a random pull from the shop added … voila!!
