|Cherry Matchless double treadle|
This is my spinning wheel. I thought I wanted the Schacht Reeves saxony style wheel but several people told me it was not the type of wheel I was looking for. What did I want? Something versatile, attractive, double treadle for sure and that’s where my list ended. I am not a great spinner. I have only been spinning sporadically for 5 years and, until last year, was more comfortable with a drop spindle than a spinning wheel.
The Schacht Sidekick changed that. A close friend bought one and let me use it often. I spun 500 yards of merino yarn on it and I was hooked. But I wanted something different from what she owned. So, I continued to read, research and talk to experienced spinners.

It was soon obvious that the cherry Matchless was it. One problem. Schacht made a limited number of cherry Matchless wheels in June 2009 and it was almost impossible to find a new one. A friend who happens to be a Schacht dealer (Schacht sells it’s products through its dealers and you can find one HERE). Fortunately, my friend had one cherry Matchless unclaimed and I bought it.
The story doesn’t end there. I love this wheel. I believe it’s name truly describes the wheel, it is matchless. And now, for a limited time, Schacht is offering its cherry Matchless spinning wheel. I only have 2 available and you have until April 15th to claim yours with a $750 deposit. Let’s talk about the special features on this amazing wheel.
Once I tried the Schacht cherry Matchless, I knew it was the wheel for me. If you want to give it a spin, contact me at email@example.com and we can arrange a time for you to stop by my studio. I am available 3 days a week unless there is a class in session. The studio is located near Washington, DC, about 30 miles from Frederick, MD and 15 miles from Leesburg, VA. You can try the Matchless, a Sidekick and various looms.
Happy Spring and happy spinning!
