Fibre craft covers such a wide aspect of crafting with fibre (wool) and is one of the main aspects of Nifty Needles. Many of our workshops are involved around fibre and I enjoy teaching and showing others the benefits and enjoyment of learning the fibre crafts.
Working with fibre has been a lifelong passion, which started with learning to knit and crochet at a young age. The craft was very much part of my life growing up as my mother and older sister were constantly knitting or crocheting away. I guess it was just second nature that I would acquire a passion for the craft. The next step that naturally evolved was spinning the raw fibre on a spinning wheel, which I learnt when I was a young teenager.
