This is what has been happening behind the scenes at Fiberygoodness.com. It started with a small idea and has grown into something that is going to create some big changes.

Hiya everyone, Next month starts one of my absolute favorite only fibery events Tour de Fleece!

It’s hard to believe we are wrapping up another year already! As we get close to the end of the year I like to gather all the projects I’ve done over the year and pile them up into a group photo. It helps me take in everything I’ve accomplished and also so I can think on what sort of goals I want for the New Year. I don’t like to make goals that are too hard set, it’s more like

With the release of the recent Pantone Color report and the publication of the September issue of Vogue magazine, we get a peek into some fresh ideas for colors and shapes for Spring 2016. With winter right around the corner, not being a great fan of the cold and snow, I am happy to dream of spring.
Publisher’s Notes: This Featured Artist post is near and dear to my heart for a number of reasons. Karen Pardee of Serendipity Saori Studio is a fiber hero of mine AND she lives in a part of the United States that is both beautiful as well as an area where I have roots and am connected. I know that you will enjoy reading about Karen and what led her to study and embrace Saori. It is with great pleasure that

This week we would like to share something with you! Perhaps you already know about our Fiberygoodness Yarn Recipe series (for sale in our shop), these are spin techniques largely developed by myself (Woolwench/Suzy) and Arlene (the awesome SpinArtiste).
