Hummm .... Crazy Daisy Winder. A faint bell went off. Where had I seen this before? I have a little tool tucked away in my craft supplies upstairs, but realized that it wasn't the Crazy Daisy Winder, but a Flower Loom. Similar, but not at all the same.
And then, I realized it was familiar because I've seen a variety of patterns in 1950s and 1960s magazines calling for the Crazy Daisy Winder. With two exception, I've skipped reworking these patterns for my shop as I didn't know what the Crazy Daisy Winder is, or how applicable it might be to todays' fiber artists. The two patterns I do have ?
For the fun of it, I did go browse the web for awhile. And WOW ... there are instructions out there on how to use it, as well as a Flickr Group with some pretty fun items. So, I guess it is not a thing totally of the past and there are still some Crazy Daisy Winders out there! I'll have to start processing these patterns as I come across them.
Hope you enjoy the old advertisement ... Time Saving, Simple and Money Saving too !
