Tabi Ferguson's Profile

About

When I was very young, my grandmother taught me to knit and crochet and sew. She also taught me about beautiful fibres and the fabrics they produce.

Now I'm lucky enough to be able to live my dream working with fibre and colour to produce beautiful high quality handspun yarns and hand dyed spinning fibres.

I love teaching and talking about spinning as I firmly believe that all knitters will eventually succumb to their "inner spinner".

Finally The detail, the texture, the delicacy of lace. I love that in these days of instant gratification, it is something that takes a long time.
