The Pins, The Pins…


Both pins are now here and will be available November 1.

Are you ready to start the 12 days of Christmas Stashdown? Maybe you have a very deep stash to dive into during 2020.

Either way, the #spin15aday12days event will be 12 days of posting on IG, with 12 chances to have your name drawn for a 1764 studio dyed braid of fiber in festive holiday colors when you purchase the #spin15aday12days event pin.  Though, you can still participate at anytime during the event even if a pin is not purchased, though only spinners that have purchased a pin will be eligible for the fiber giftaways.

As for #spin15adaystashdown2020, that is one big year with 366 days (yep, it’s a leap year) to spin down the stash.  Impromptu giftaways will take place through out the year for all that join in and use the #spin15adaystashdown2020 hashtag.

So are you ready? I know I am!


#spin15aday12days event just around the corner!

The #spin15aday12days of stashdown begins December 25 and runs through January 5, 2020 and to celebrate the 12 days of Christmas, we are kicking off the year of #spin15adaystashdown2020 with this fun #spin15adayevent .

There will only be enamel pins and some enamel pin/charm combos will be available to participants to purchase. No fiber this round, as we are heading towards a stashdown year, though…

For participants that purchase an event pin and post during the event, I will be drawing one name everyday for a holiday themed dyed roving from the 1764 studio dyepot to send to the name drawn. 12 days with a chance to receive even more fiber to stashdown. Just follow along with the event activity sheet that will accompany the event pin.

Falkland, BFL/Silk and Corriedale are some of the fibers I dyed up for the event prizes.

Are you ready to stash dive? I know I am.

Paula Simmons


I found an online audio phone interview with Namaste Farms and Paula Simmons that took place about seven years ago.  You can go here and starting at about the 25 minute mark, you can listen to the conversation.

I currently have three of her spinning books with a fourth ordered and on its way!

Timeless information for fiber folk and a great addition to your personal library.

Something interesting Paula Simmons says: “Spinning is very personal.” I couldn’t agree more!

Grab some tea or coffee and your spinning wheel and take a listen!
