spindles and textiles, oh yeah!

well, no secret that i love textiles and textile tools. my calendar arrived today, and i love it - if you feel like checking it out, it's here.

i picked out the wrong calendar last year - couldn't find the buddhist icon one that i usually purchase, so picked up one that i thought i'd like. seems like a small thing, but the photographs of blue heelers - much as i like those dogs - just wasn't the right thing to look at day after day. i wanted to see images that i really liked, so this year it'll be all spindles, all the time.

(holiday) gifts of learning

I love sharing my interests, and teaching is one way to do that. When people get together over shared enthusiasms and start to play and experiment, I can pretty much guarantee that it's going to be a great day.

On that note, if you or someone you know is interested in learning, I'm teaching a couple of spinning workshops and one crazy quilt session in Boston this Spring. If you want to give someone a gift certificate for the classes, email me (, and I'll send a nice card to let them know about your gift. If you want to register, you can find links below. Thanks!
