Hand carding with Majacraft

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!

New Purchase Option!

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.

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

2018 Round-up

First lets start with something festive!  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!
