About

It all started with a crochet hook and a kid who woke up too early.

Robin started crocheting when she was 4. She used to get up really early [still does] so her mom taught her how to crochet and got her busy working on an afghan. Robin fell in love with fiber.

She learned to knit as a teenager, but that didn't go very well and it wasn't until college that she found someone who taught her how to knit comfortably - carrying the yarn in her left hand. [It's a crocheting thing.] She knitted all through graduate school.

In 1989, Robin got married and learned to spin. Her husband learned to weave. After a few years, she and her husband bought a place with 40 acres - just perfect for sheep. They had sheep for several years and that's when Robin learned to dye wool. A couple of years later, she taught herself to dye cottons and cellulose fibers, which is what she really loves to dye.

More than anything, Robin loves to combine colors. She teaches color theory, spinning, crochet, dyeing and weaving. She was a recipient of an Indiana Artist Grant and has won several awards from juried art shows and fiber festivals.

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalized orders

I do not do custom dyeing on your fiber. Dyeing is very careful and fussy work and I'd hate for something to go wrong on your project.

OMG! It's not in a ball/cake! How do I get this skein into a ball?!

It's OK. You're not the first person to be confused when confronted with a skein instead of a ball. The trick with all yarns, especially slippery or fine yarns, is to keep the skein held firmly with no sagging while you wind into a ball. You can use your knees, a couple of chairs, a friend's hands, a swift [special tool for just this purpose!]. Take your time, don't rush it and if you feel it getting out of control - stop, breathe, and arrange your skein better. You'll be an expert in no time at all.

Can you weave this a little wider/narrower/with more blue, etc.?

My handwovens are one of a kind. I often use 20 different yarns in a project. Hand-dyed things cannot be replicated. I have given the measurements for each item and you are welcome to contact me to see if the fabric will stretch an extra inch or so when worn, but I cannot make another one 'just like that one' but 2 inches wider.

Care instructions

Yarn/handwovens: Hand wash in cold water. Lay flat to dry.

Wooden spindles: Dust occasionally and polish with your favorite furniture polish.

Wholesale availability

I no longer to wholesale or quantity discounts. However, I do offer free shipping on any order over $200 not including sales tax [Indiana]. Feel free to contact me with questions.
