More exciting Overdrive news!

We have been steadily working through the Overdrive orders and shipping them as fast as we can. If you are on the list for one, take heart, you have not been forgotten and we will get it to you as soon as possible!

I have carried out some further testing on some of our older wheels and we are now confident that the Overdrive will work on ALL Majacraft Roses and Suzies. The early generation Roses (and some Suzie Alpaca wheels) had a wooden nut that tightened the handle onto the head. We will include a smaller stainless steel nut with the Overdrive kit to replace the wooden nut and then the bobbin drive band will no longer be interfered with. If you are ordering an Overdrive for one of these Roses, please let your dealer know so we can include the special nut. The Suzies are easy as the Overdrive fits straight on.

Here is the picture of the original wooden nut on a Rose handle

So if you have been waiting to hear this news, I hope it has brightened your day!

Until next time
