Firstly, I am a mom and wife. My husband, also our IT Support here at Wool n' Spinning, and I have two children, who have made appearances on the show: James, 5, and Norah, 3.5.

My passion lies in the field of fibre arts and making. I love making yarn, talking and chatting about the process, and teaching handspinning. I also have come to love technology, video editing and writing. I've always kept a journal and written short stories but now I channel some of those words into essays, blog posts and content here! This has been a welcome surprise.

Wool n' Spinning started out as a way to talk about the topics I wanted to talk about and has slowly become about creating community, fellowship and learning opportunities. Most of us are seeking to become better versions of ourselves and it is a pleasure to share that journey with you. 

The pleasure of making yarn by hand can not be underestimated! You don't need a spinning wheel to do it and I love my spindling equally.

With my Patreons' support, creating more teaching materials, hosting giveaway and increasingly the time length of the podcast will be attainable!

Patreon offers me the chance to be compensated for the value of the content I produce, while still covering pesky costs like downloads, domain names, software and hardware, and tools to demo with for you. It keeps the YouTube channel ad-free and generates an income for me to be able to be at home, creating for you.

Having a Patreon campaign means we can work towards more live streaming opportunities, as well as audio, travelling in the future to teach workshops and retreats, and many other opportunities we haven't even thought of yet!

Goals
$1,138 of $2,000 per month
While this will be fine-tuned as we reach this milestone, we will explore the world of audio in more depth with conversations, interviews and recordings bi-monthly. Wool n' Spinning Radio will be released twice monthly to our Patreon community! At this point, the goals for the show will become community-numbers based rather than financial (ie. When we hit X number of people, we start Y in the community). I feel at this point that I will be able to focus on Wool n' Spinning in a way I hadn't been able to before and with that comes focusing more on our community numbers, creating a healthy and vibrant community, and looking after one another!
