Shave ‘Em to Save ‘Em

We were so happy with our Issue 8 release, and we had so much content we just couldn’t fit it all in! So we will be running a new series of Guest posts right here on the blog for everyone to enjoy! Today I would like to welcome Audrey Busby who wrote this fascinating article about the Shave ’em to Save ’em initiative. The preservation of rare sheep breeds is really important, as it bring us ongoing learning, a wider

Since the very beginning of tinyStudio, I have kept all our current issues available to subscribers only. We LOVE our subscribers, their support is what keeps us going from issue to issue, video podcast to video podcast 🙂 I want to be sure that our subscribers know just how much we appreciate that support.

It is always an exciting moment, to share the news that the issue we have been working hard on for the last three months is finally ready to share with all our wonderful subscribers! And here it is, Issue 7, brimming with information, colourful eye candy, and projects. The underlying focus in this issue is celebration of design and inspiration, which sometimes comes from ‘time out’! This can mean different things to different people. For some, time out is aimed

Fiber Art Directory

Fiber Art Directory

A week or so ago we shared a new initiative we have started to help support our fiber arts community. This started because we are aware of so many fiber events being closed down due to the global pandemic, and the vendors we would normally be buying from and supporting were unable to share their wares. However we have loved the process and result so much that we have decided to continue with this directory as an ongoing free offering

The Great Quarantine Bobbin Challenge!

Did you catch up with our latest challenge? This is a four way challenge between Arlene Thayer, Christiane Knight, Melissa Yoder Ricks, and myself. It all started way back in the heady days of the SpinArtiste blog, Arlene (the Spin Artiste herself) would run the most fun bobbin challenges, a ‘can you spin this’ activity in which materials were selected and posted out, and the spinners would have to get really innovative in finding ways to put them together into

Going to Print Update

Going to Print Update

It is time to make hard decisions, I am sure I am not the only one faced with these at the moment. Over the last couple of months I have been working really hard to get us ready to go to print with our next tinyStudio Creative Life magazine issue. I have had each issue printed as a one off just for myself and Evanita, and it is an absolute thrill to get it in my hands. The drive to

tiny Hackle Studio – Free Workshop

Fun With Spikes! Here we go! We are all, in one way or another, finding our way through the global pandemic known as Covid-19. It has been an emotional roller coaster for many of us, and I feel this is a great time to bring you something to distract you from the stresses of lockdown and social distancing. This is something I began mid 2019 after being asked to teach at Majacraft Camp 2020. The theme was ‘Naturals’. Over the

At tinyStudio we have been looking for ways to help support our community and especially those who have lost sales (and stash enhancement opportunities) as Fiber Events around the world are cancelled due to Covid-19 As one way we think we can help, we are creating a definitive directory of vendors: fiber producers and suppliers, yarn dyers, tool makers, and teachers. The goal is to get everyone listed in one place, as a resource for buyers to shop online. This
