It’s really, really starting to happen! Here are our first few Sidekicks, assembled tested and eager to go forth into the world. We’ll start shipping in a matter of days. We know a lot of these first wheels will be finding their way to Maryland Sheep and Wool, so if you’re planning to attend, be sure to give a Sidekick a spin.
Schacht Spindle Company, Inc. was founded during the back-to-earth movement of the late 1960s and its accompanying craft resurgence. Their first loom was a simple tapestry loom, a version which they still make today. Over nearly 50 years, Schacht has developed a broad range of high-quality hand weaving and hand spinning tools, including their popular Cricket Loom and Ladybug Spinning wheel. Schacht’s mission is to create beautiful and well-designed products that enhance customers’ weaving and spinning experience through innovative problem solving, creative ideas, skilled woodworking and craftsmanship, and friendly, knowledgeable customer service. Schacht’s family-owned business is located in Boulder, Colorado.
