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

Issue 7 is published!

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!

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

Firstly, I do hope you and your loved ones are safe and well in these difficult times. This is definitely the moment for us all to work together and support each other with kindness and generosity, to hopefully ease some of the anxiety and stress we are all facing. I hope that things tinyStudio are bringing you a little light, and some creative inspiration to help you through! Don’t forget in a recent post I shared my free and complete

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

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

What We Can DO

What We Can DO

As the world is slowing down and we are more and more confined to keep our families and communities safe, many of us are worrying about how we can remain connected with our friends, our fiber groups, and keep our creative lives positive. One of the very earliest goals we had for Fiberygoodness when we got started in 2013 was to be a connection point for people all around the world, understanding that not everyone has a social spinning group

Getting Print Ready (steady.. go!)

Getting Print Ready (steady.. go!)

Today I posted on our Facebook group about the anxiety I have been feeling as I get everything set up ready to move into adding print magazine issues to our subscription options for tinyStudio Creative Life magazine! I am at the stage where the numbers seem overwhelming, the financial commitment is daunting, and the usual self doubt nibbles away to undermine my confidence about being able to inspire enough people to subscribe to cover the print and distribution costs! eeeek!

Here I am back again, to announce the publication of Issue SIX of tinyStudio Creative Life magazine! The time has sped by since our previous issue, but we have been super busy behind the scenes getting this issue ready to go.

The gentle focus or theme in this issue is ‘Conscious Crafting’, something that I think
