SILK, SILK, SILK!!!

Is it wrong to have SILK COCOONS spun onto EVERY spindle you own?

SilkSpindles

I think NOT!!! Just look at those yummy BON BON’s of BLISS!

How could any spinner resist?

I am always surprised when someone asks me how to

use a fiber and then actually does just that.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                The finished MASTERPIECE speaks for itself……Sublime!

If you build a FEAST…..they will come.

The process of putting together moving images and stills for my first Online Class is surprisingly similar to having a child.

If you are clever (which I was not then – but am now)  you might actually “ponder” how it will change your life forever if you do it.

But in the heat of the moment, exciting as it is…..it happens and then you are committed.  You have told enough people about it that there is NO TURNING BACK.

Your mind is now a swirl of wild ideas about “how it will be”, which is NOTHING like how it will “actually” be……

Doing your best to prepare…..like a good Girl Scout, you rally your best ideas and gather it all up, think, re-think, organize, shuffle, and put everything where you

think it should go.  It takes so long that it doesn’t even seem like it will happen and then……THE DAY ARRIVES!!!

It’s  been with you every day, but it still does not seem REAL.

Well it is real and this is it.

Can you see the Online Classroom Tab at the top of this page?

Feeling a bit ADVENTUROUS?

If you decide to purchase my Class, may I ask that you try not to laugh too hard, In one segment I say the word FUN 17 times!

Building a SPINNABLE Feast……

“Feast” is a Mixed Media ART Yarn experience, for the adventurous SPINNER.
Over 20 luxurious ingredients go into this FEISTY mix….hand built in my studio and available in Golds, Oranges, Poppy, Pinks, Reds, Violets, Blues, Greens, Turquoise, Ice Forest (all sparlky whites!) Soft/neutral beiges, chocolate and BLACK. Offering this for the first time RETAIL.
Lovely presentation in a cellophane cone with silk ribbon ties. 4oz – $40bucks. I will suggest that you grab an armful, set it on your lap and basically deal with every tid-bit as it presents itself to you and MAKE IT WORK….feed it to the wheel! I like to ply mine with a 60/2 silk thread or metallic thread for extra shizzle…Divine! Let me know if you want some before I hit the SHOW circuit. fyberfiend@yahoo.com
PSS: I will be teaching this at Fiber in the Forest in May 2013.

It’s a BEAUTIFUL thing!
