What the heck is a heck? In A Spinner’s Dozen: 14 Darn Useful Tools, Stephenie Gaustad shines a light on tools for fiber and yarn management that will make your yarn more consistent and spinning more productive. Drawing on her decades-long passion for spinning, she guides you through the what, why, and how-to of tools she finds invaluable. Using her own hand-drawn illustrations and spinning stories, Stephenie relates the wisdom and practicality of tools that have been used for generations and are still darn useful today.
For more than 45 years, Stephenie Gaustad has been educating and delighting fiber artists with her classes, articles, illustrations, and books on spinning, dyeing, and weaving. Her legendary knowledge and warmth have earned her a legion of fans and a place in the pantheon of elite fiber arts teachers and mentors. She fills her classes and written words with humor, fiber nitty-gritty, and wonderful, obscure facts. She loves nothing more than truckin’ around the country teaching about fiber, poking into attics for tools, and singing and dancing with friends.
