Me and my older wheel

This photo was sent to me by the person who took it for a small town newspaper. I was demonstrating spinning at the Festifall Celebration held at Newton Hills State Park in SD. I found the name and more details for the wheel on a New Zealand spinning wheel site. It is called a Sleeping Beauty and only came in kit form imported from New Zealand. Made in the early 1970's. This is my first wheel and was quite a challenge to learn to spin on. It is quite finnicky. But I have spun a lot of yarn on it! It no longer goes to the demonstrations with me. It is too big and one of the legs is just taped on so it gets to stay at home.
