makedo flax winder

one of my customers saw the antique thread winder we had on line. Unfortunately it was sold by the time she saw it. She asked if we could do a similar one maybe using sticks instead of spools. This is what we came up with for her. I am thrilled with the outcome. The frame is handmade from old tobacco lath and measures 18"hX9"w. The sticks make the width approximately 12". We wound some old flax around each of the sticks and added an aged floursack fabric strip as a hanger. Perfect to hang over your old sewing machine table or any wall in any room of your home actually.
