Last weekend marked the last of 2020’s line up of spinning workshops. What a great group of people I have had the good fortune to work with over the past year….talented, inquisitive, creative, adventurous and hardworking. One of the things that kept percolating to the top of my mind as I worked with these wonderful souls was my own defining moments as a spinner…..those things that have made me a better spinner over the years. I’ll be sharing a few of those moments over the coming months. Here is one I am sure many experienced spinners can relate to…..
- When I stopped criticizing/picking apart my spinning skills; believing I should not waste quality fibres until I was “good enough”. At some point it finally dawned on me that even if I became a better spinner, it would not show through, if I used crappy fibre to start with.
