Grandmas’s Spinning Wheel

Of course since my Mom is a quilter I visited several quilt shops in the Tucson area.  I picked up some lovely fat quarters of various Southwestern patterns, petroglyphs, hands, and kokopeli.  I told her ahead of time that I was wanting to stop by a spinning shop and there just happened to be one in the shopping center with a quilt store.  Grandma’s Spinning Wheel carries a variety of yarns, fibers, beads, jewelry, handbags, spinning wheels, spindles and fiber.  I told the very personable and helpful owner that I was looking for fiber that was unique to the area and she pointed me in the direction of some Navajo wool, ready to spin and dye.  Also some locally raised sheep of a gorgeous grey color.  I will post these in the coming days.  For now some photos of her shop.

  1. Meg,

    Your Mom came by the store today and told us about you writing about the store in your blog. She gave us the web address and told us to make sure to check out what you had written. Thank you for the kind words and the added exposure. It is fun to see the photos of the shop on the web too. We hope you will stop in and visit again the next time you are in Tucson.

  2. I just purchased my first wheel from Vicky and Michael. They are professional, knowledgeable, kind, honest…there are not enough words to describe them and their store. The selection of fibers is wonderful and they take the time to teach individuals about the differences. Their daughter works there also and shares her expertise. Overall, purchasing from them is a positive experience and it was worth traveling four and a half hours from another state to do business with them.
