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!

225 of 400 patrons
This is a huge milestone because our community will be a small village! An idea from my techy-husband had a great idea for "secret" monthly Patreon-only making evenings, which is code for monthly vlogs. Recorded while I am making, whether it is at my wheel, knitting or weaving, I'll bring along my camcorder and we will have a little chat about what I'm working on in the moment. It'll be like you're sitting right there beside me as I warp a loom, work through a new skill on my wheel or knit some crazy stitch (or review a pattern while I'm knitting away). These will be LIVE STREAMED so you can join me in real-time! Can't wait to join me? Come along with me!
