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

I first heard about Charan through the shared online excitement over his

Hand carding with Majacraft

On some of my more recent tinyStudio TV Episodes (sent out to all our lovely magazine subscribers) and also on my YouTube channel, I have been showing my use of the Majacraft Hand Cards and the resulting yarns I have spun after my fleece carding experiments! This post is my review of the Majacraft 96tpi handcards! Being a Majacraft fan, of course I have had them since they came out, and at the time I was not heavily into hand

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
