A resource page for the Craft of Spinning, Knitting, Dying and Felting.

I have been spinning, dying, designing knitwear and generally enjoying this craft now for many years and along with writing have found it one of the most theurapeutic hobbies I have.

Many a great plot has been formulated as my jumpers have been spun and dyed.  It has also saved my sanity over the last few years !!

I find that spinning isn't something I do , but is something I am - I met the best friend a person could ever have through spinning, and I enjoy being in the company of the members of the Guilds.
