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.

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!

Here I am back again, to announce the publication of Issue SIX of tinyStudio Creative Life magazine!

Fleece!

Fleece!

If you like to purchase raw fleece and do your own fiber prep for spinning, you probably also find that its handy to keep a record of fleeces you have and fleeces you have also processed and finished with!

It is getting closer to THAT time of the year, the time when we look to fairy lights, magical sparkle and gorgeous rich colour to festive up our environments. It is then my very big pleasure to share with you something very special from our guest blogger Corinne Milan from the UK.

Issue 5 is GO!

Issue Five is out now! The gentle focus or theme in this issue is ‘Of Nature’, and of course there is a whole lot of nature to be inspired by, enthused about, and to revel in! When I was planning this issue I was thinking of all the natural colours of wool and fibers, the ways nature inspires so many artists in their creativity and thinking. Then I dug down even deeper and started thinking about the ‘nature’ of who we

Fundamental Issues with Marketing

This is a post a little bit away from my usual, however there is this THING I have been grappling with for some months now, and I am finally starting to see the light! The THING is marketing.
