Resources

 

We'll add to this section as we go, but here are just a few of the many resources available to people engaged in the wonderful world of fiber arts - - 

Ravelry

www.ravelry.com

excerpt from their website: "Ravelry is a place for knitters, crocheters, designers, spinners, weavers and dyers to keep track of their yarn, tools, project and pattern information, and look to others for ideas and inspiration. The content here is all user- driven; we as a community make the site what it is. Ravelry is a great place for you to keep notes about your projects, see what other people are making, find the perfect pattern and connect with people who love to play with yarn from all over the world in our forums."

The Joy of Handspinning

www.joyofhandspinning.com

excerpt from their website: "Here you will find all the information you need to teach yourself the art of handspinning yarn. Our web site includes several video demonstrations to assist you in learning various handspinning techniques, along with articles of helpful information. Like many art forms, handspinning is done in a variety of ways, which makes it so exciting. What you learn from our site is our approach and what we’ve learned along the way. It is so refreshing to see handspinning beginning to break away from tradition and move into a more contemporary direction. Therefore, we also include these contemporary approaches on the site."
