Shuttles - Bluster Bay Woodworks
Bluster Bay Woodworks are "Supremely Beautiful, Seriously Functional Textile Tools"!
We are thrilled to be the newest shop carrying BBW lovely shuttles! Opening the box was like Christmas - they are truly the prettiest shuttles we've ever seen. Tracy tested one of their end feed shuttles and was hooked - they not only look good and feel good but they work better than other EF shuttles!
We have an assortment of woods in each style. Pictures may not represent what wood is actually in stock. If you want a picture or more information call or email, we will be happy to help! The weight of each shuttle varies depending on wood type. We can tell you the weight of the different shuttles - just ask.
