It's a curse and a blessing, living with a fiber enthusiast. On the one hand, I get to learn neat facts about things like forage-able fibers and retting. On the other hand, I get covered in blue dryer lint. Hiss.
You've purchased your own spinning wheel, and--now what? Yes, Joseph filmed a spinning tutorial for the Etsy playlist on YouTube.

We love hearing back from you about what you're building and what you're using it for. Alyce from Applestar Creations recently sent us some pictures from her all-red build that she dubbed Rodkvila.

Guess what? We're famous.

My mother, a trooper, volunteered/invited me to decorate a Christmas tree for charity. When we arrived at the expo center, I felt immersed in Santa's workshop. Christmas music floated over 2,000+ square feet of Christmas trees, gingerbread houses, and quilts donated by volunteers to benefit a local hospital. My experience as a temporary Christmas elf got me thinking: how would I decorate my own tree? Now, accidentally, I have the answer: I could print my own drop spindles!
We Moved! Q&A
This past month we moved our humble print farm more than 1000 miles away. We love our new place and we love our new space and we're scrambling to keep up with orders.
