‘Yarn Floating’ – Another way to use Art Yarn

‘Yarn Floating’ – Another way to use Art Yarn

The free Tutorial download link can be found at the bottom of the page! If you are like me, you probably have something of a wee stash of art yarns, and many of mine are also smallish quantities, made as demo’s during workshops, or as experiment samples, or even just using up the last of a particular fibre that I love. Usually I keep all these for weaving with, they tend to make my favourite weavings! But of course there

Evolution Evolving

An exciting milestone has just been reached in the growth of the Fiberygoodness Evolution project! We have just come to the end of our very first official project! There have been more than ten teams working together, through live video spin sessions, chat group messages, and the facebook group page, and the creations from this first project have been stunning! It has been wonderful to see people commenting about trying out new things, helping each other, and sharing their ideas,

Branding for Fiber Artists

Branding… we hear about it all the time right? In some ways its kinda frowned upon, ‘branding’ is often viewed as something utterly commercial, you pay for the name on the product, buying into the image associated with the ‘brand’, which is often considered a bit, well, shallow, and a waste of money when you can get the same thing for half the price ‘without’ that well known logo on it.. Thats one side of branding. Serious commercialism. Major advertising

Making Magic with your Majacraft Aura – Free online Live Session!

Update! Follow this link for the live session now! https://youtu.be/m-CbCVHdSws A wee while ago, and this was before Fiberygoodness became official Majacraft dealers, we had this idea. It was just coincidence (or a like minds thing) that we all have an Aura each, and of course just like all spinners, we love talking about our wheels! Fiberygoodness team meetings tend to include discussions of what we are spinning and sharing our ideas 😉 So at some point Jan mentioned a very clever

Single?

Single?

I have a dear friend here in New Zealand, and she happens to be involved in a subgroup of our National Spinners and Weavers Guild (Creative Fibre NZ). Now Angela is one of those people who is always coming up with awesome ideas, and she loves to offer challenges, the lastest one is ‘we’ (as in everyone she can catch for 2 seconds) must spin a single to contribute to the collection of samples that Angela is building, and she

Fibery Goodies! Free Project to Spin and Wear!

A little while ago we brought you the ebook on how to approach and spin Multi-Media fibers such as those found in the wonderful Namaste Farm ‘ScrapBoxes’ or collections of various different fibers from your stash. This week I would like to offer you an extra treat that sprung from that original offering, and this is free for a limited time! When we were working on the Multi Media book projects we (the contributors) were challenged to share our own

Big and Bulky!

Big and Bulky!

So here I am in a New Zealand summer, feeling the heat and enjoying the sunshine, very much aware of the vast climate difference others are experiencing in the northern hemisphere right now! Just a week or so ago I saw images of people ice skating in the streets of northern Holland, bringing back some very fond memories of playing in the snow and ice during the winters I was there. One of my big pleasures at the time was

But what do you do with it?

I am sure many of us art yarn spinners have heard the same thing.. its beautiful, but what do you do with it? Sometimes is not even so complimentary, statements such as ‘its unusable’ and ‘theres nothing you can make with that’, directed at a lovely lockspun yarn simply because its bulky, and theres 30 meters of it.. So here is my post today, some examples of a few things that you CAN do with art yarns, and these are

How We Change

Last week Arlene posted about being stuck and working through some of the creative slumps we all get into sometimes. So this week we thought I should follow this up with a little look at something else that happens with all of us during our creative lives, and that is change. I think this is something that can help cause those many WIPs to come about, you know, you start a project, and for whatever reason it gets put aside.

Spin to Ply

Its my turn to write a blogpost  this week (Suzy), and I would like to share something with you about spinning, more specifically about plying. This is actually a document that we created to send out along  with our first set of yarn recipe cards, and I think its useful for anyone who wants to ply once, twice, three times, even ten times.. if you want to add texture to your yarns, create unique combinations of colour and form, and
