About

My journey into my love for all things fiber started very innocently. I started crocheting with my second cousin many years ago. We spent the winter making blankets, potholders, and other assorted items. I loved hand-crafting them from only a string and a hook. The art of taking raw materials into custom crafts with my own hands was so satisfying. When I moved, I lost my teacher and sadly did not know where or how to look for another. I enjoy the company of others with common interests willing to share their knowledge and learning different aspects of hand made crafts.

When my close friend began teaching me to knit, it was so natural. I began reading books and absorbing everything I could. I wanted more than what I was finding in stores. Everywhere I visited offered the same as the last. I remembered from my youth how much I was mesmerized when I first saw a woman hand-spinning yarn. We were visiting a…

When my close friend began teaching me to knit, it was so natural. I began reading books and absorbing everything I could. I wanted more than what I was finding in stores. Everywhere I visited offered the same as the last. I remembered from my youth how much I was mesmerized when I first saw a woman hand-spinning yarn. We were visiting a period reenactment when I discovered this amazing woman and her spinning wheel with the yarn quickly filling the spool. Her hands quickly fed the wool into the spinning wheel. This began my quest to learn how the spinning wheel worked and the process of creating yarn from start to finish. She happily answered each of my questions my parents picked me up and carried me away, because I would not leave until she was done.

My beginning into the world of hand spinning was with a drop spindle I found it was not what I had fallen in love with so many years ago. I began the search for my own spinning wheel to complete that childhood dream to learn the art that has blossomed into a love for everything fiber. From the processing of fiber, to spinning, dying, felting, knitting, crocheting, and learning to weave. There is always more out there to learn and something else I want to try for myself.
