Shave ‘Em to Save ‘Em

Shave ‘Em to Save ‘Em

We were so happy with our Issue 8 release, and we had so much content we just couldn’t fit it all in! So we will be running a new series of Guest posts right here on the blog for everyone to enjoy!

New Purchase Option!

Since the very beginning of tinyStudio, I have kept all our current issues available to subscribers only.

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.

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! What I am sharing with you now is a super easy peasy graphic way of recording just the key information about each fleece you have purchased.
