EEW Newsletter – EEW 6.1 in Stock

Electric Eel Wheel Newsletter by Dreaming Robots

April 24, 2024

This email will be replacing my normal May 2024 Newsletter.

EEW 6.1

Upgrade to the EEW 6.1 now!  The EEW 6.1 is a bigger, more powerful, and smoother version of the EEW Nano. Order today for $269, before it goes back to $299 on May 1st. This limited time discount is my way of thanking both return customers and those who have been patiently waiting while the EEW 6 has been out of stock.  Due to high demand there may be shipping delays of upto a week.  Watch this video for a quick overview of the EEW 6.1

Here are some of my favorite features of the EEW 6.1:

  • Compact travel friendly design
  • Weighs under 3 pounds (1.3 kgs)
  • Bobbins hold 8 ounces (225 grams)
  • Sealed ball bearings on all friction points (eliminates need for oil and results in quiet operation)
  • Controls are ergonomic and easy to use
  • Brushless motor gives more speed and power than previous EEWs (max speed of 1,800 RPMs at the flyer)

Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival

We will be at Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival May 4-5. If you’re attending there check out the booth.  We’ll have all our products there to try and buy:

  • EEW 6.1
  • EEW Nano 2

  • EEW Lazy Kate
  • EEW Yarn Counter

See you there!  Don’t forget to come to the Spin In on Saturday evening.

Photo Winner

Last month I asked people to submit photos.  The response was tremendous.  I now have hundreds of photos that I’ll be slowly uploading to my Instagram page over time.  The randomly selected winner of an EEW 6.1 was Serena (@bassoonlady1).  Thanks for all the contributions!  

EEW 6.1 3D Printable Parts

I’ve released 3D printable files for the new parts coming with the EEW 6.1. This includes an updated bottom, the new arm support, and the improved yarn guides.  Go here to learn more about how to get 3D files printed.

Product Updates

Below are estimates and the dates may change.

  • EEW Nano 2.1 – January 2025

I don’t accept pre-orders in my store, but when I get a batch of products there should be enough for everyone who wants them.
