It was in the January of 2011 that I, Katie Seal, received my first spinning wheel. The first thing my childhood friend said to me that day as she gazed upon my shiny new Ashford Traditional will forever remain with me: 

What are you, like, Sealy MacWheely or something?”

I thought it was the stupidest thing I had ever heard. 
It stuck.
