It’s that time again, the time when I ask you to review the current issue. I want to know what you think. I have some gorgeous textured batts to send one lucky reviewer/subscriber. They’re the kind of batts that make fantastic corespun yarn, the kind that Steph Gorin wrote about in this very issue. If […]

As the clocks clicked over to 10:00, everything went live. I was nervous that I was throwing a party that nobody would come to (highschool was a tough time for everyone, right?) but at 10:01 we had 2 orders! The guides worked! Those first 2 spinners went through there like the wind! Or like somebody posted […]
It’s coming! Registration for the first annual PLY Away is only a few short days away (Wednesday, Nov 11th at 10 am, CST). We’ve made a few guides to help you choose and to get you ready for the registration process, they’re here ! I think they’re really helpful so take a look if your plans […]

One of my favorite projects in any PLY is the Pacific Trillium Stole by Melinda VerMeer.

It feels substantial and delicate at the same time. The […]
I always find it so interesting and beautiful, the different wheels we spinners use. I love that there is a wheel for everyone. I thought you might like to see the wheels that were at the workshop in New Mexico. There’s some well-known wheels and a few lesser known ones!
I’m in New Mexico. I’m not supposed to be here, but here I am. I had a fantastic weekend with the Las Aranas guild, spinning and braving the snow and ice covered roads (in New Mexico!). While I was here I received the most amazing indigo-dyed gossamer shawl I’ve ever had the luck to fold […]
