Once again, I had the pleasure to be invited along with the Greblogueuses at the big local craftfair “Creativa”. A perfect opportunity to connect with crafters, see again familiar faces… and share my love of crochet and spindle spinning with others !

My top 3 favorite spinning tools and tips

Posted: Wednesday, September 30th, 2015 @ 10:33 am in spinning | No Comments »

I spin yarn on a budget, and thus my spinning gear is not within the higher range of what you could find on the market. Still, I hope this will inspire others to see you don’t need the most expensive tools to spin yarn. # 1 – I do love my Bliss wheel by Woolmakers. […]

Such wonderful memories in this chalet with my friend Sophie. For several months I’ve been trying to organise a spinning/crochet/knitting retreat there, to share the passion and meet more amazing crafters… (I know most of you have already planned your summer by now… Hopefully next year I’ll have all the details ready by spring!) Take […]

Fantastic day last sunday, full of fiber and spinning wheels and drumcarders, dear friends and new friends. We spun, carded, chatted, watched a demo of carding a super textured batt for art yarns.. And all this only 1 hour away from home in our little corner of France. It was a joy to be among […]

This summer has been very special. My bestest happiest craftiest friend Sophie, who battled Cancer for the last 3 years and a half, passed away. At the very end of june, when it became obvious this wasn’t going to be just another of the frequent trips back and forth to hospital ( & because I […]

Bliss, my Woolmakers spinning wheel

Posted: Wednesday, June 11th, 2014 @ 3:47 pm in Fiber Prep, Hackle, spinning | No Comments »

For ages I’ve had dreams of getting a spinning wheel… someday. We didn’t have enough room (and yet already so many craft supplies!!) and not quite the budget either. I would spin every now and then either on my handmade spindles, or my kick-spindle. Then a few weeks back, Heike invited me to her studio […]
