Digital or Online, What’s the Difference?

Something interesting I have noted since I started publishing the tinyStudio Creative Life magazine, is the difference between ‘Online’ and ‘Digital’. Why is this important to me?

tinyStudio TV

tinyStudio TV

the tinyStudio Creative Life magazine is running along in leaps and bounds! We have had some incredible articles from a wide variety of global, talented, and ultra creative fiber artists, and the content continues to be rich and varied. In between issues, I am also busy creating the video podcasts that go with each issue! These ‘tinyStudio TV’ episodes come out every two weeks, and content varies. So far we have had a visit to a local farm at shearing

Spinning on a Budget

Spinning on a Budget

One of the things I love about the whole tinyStudio concept is one of the guiding principles behind it, which is that you do not need more than you actually NEED in order to be fulfilled as a spinner. The tinyStudio idea is not to bog yourself down in tools and giant stash, nor to feel held back because you do not have ALL the tools, when it seems like you’re ‘meant’ to have all the equipment to be a

A Day of Colour

2018 Round-up

2018 Round-up

First lets start with something festive!┬á Actually, beyond the image above, I don’t know quite where to start, this year has been eventful! At the beginning of 2018 all I knew was that I had ideas, that the website needed updating and refreshing, and the vague feeling that in order to increase my creative time I needed to put my ideas about simplification and organisation into practice! Added to this the ongoing parenting involved in getting a ten year old

Introducing tinyStudio! Its a book! Its a new Magazine!

We live in a world of instant communications, digital lifestyles, and busy living, keeping us permanently ‘on’ and frequently feeling rushed and uncreative. Even in our lives as fiber artists we can find ourselves swirling around in a myriad of online courses, books, and YouTube tutorials with step by step instructions for a million different yarns. And then there are all the tools and toys: combs, wheels, e-spinners, drum carders, lazy kates… Do you feel a little overwhelmed at all

It’s a ‘Make-Along’ Livestream with Christiane Knight!

Hello! Since last I posted, I’ve been hard at work on the second elemental representation for the FiberyGoodness Artist in Residency. But I’ve had so many folks asking me questions about the last project and how they can create their own!

This is a great way to ask detailed questions about construction, conceptualizing projects like this, and any

The Winds of Change..

They are a-blowing! Sometimes its all thats needed, it starts as a breeze of an idea and then it grows into a gusty lusty bigass idea that you just cant ignore! This is what has been happening behind the scenes at Fiberygoodness.com. It started with a small idea and has grown into something that is going to create some big changes. This is something of a rebranding, something of a direction change. We will still be offering and hosting a
