We have just released Issue 10, and we decided there was no better way to start a new year of tinyStudio Creative Life magazine than with a big splash of glorious colour! I just love this photo of Lissy, Rudi, and Christan of Lissy Cole Designs! Their zest for life and love of colour is so uplifting, and I am honoured and delighted to bring you a wonderful article about the work they do creating art with crochet, neon colours,

– Charan Sachar It has been such a pleasure getting to know the Majacraft Aura wheel as part of the Artist in Residence program. As with any new wheel, I have a process of getting to know the wheel and spinning my defaults yarns and my favorites. So here is a peak of how I started on the Aura.  Firstly, it was figuring out the twist and take up on the double drive Aura wheel because it is different from

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 πŸ™‚ 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

Fun With Spikes! Here we go! We are all, in one way or another, finding our way through the global pandemic known as Covid-19. It has been an emotional roller coaster for many of us, and I feel this is a great time to bring you something to distract you from the stresses of lockdown and social distancing. This is something I began mid 2019 after being asked to teach at Majacraft Camp 2020. The theme was ‘Naturals’. Over the

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! I am at the stage where the numbers seem overwhelming, the financial commitment is daunting, and the usual self doubt nibbles away to undermine my confidence about being able to inspire enough people to subscribe to cover the print and distribution costs! eeeek!
