Ontario Handspinning Seminar

We dread swatching, but making a swatch will help you discover the wonder of taking an idea, developing a plan, and creating a finished product. From selecting a fibre or blend, to analysing the requirements of the project, you will develop a process, including a swatch or more, to determine the correct fibre and techniques to complete your project. At the end of the workshop, you will have a list of questions you can use while planning for your next project.

Swatching Is Not a Swear Word

Kitt Fisher

Bring With You

- spinning wheel 

- hand carder and other tools used for spinning 

- note book - pencil crayons , pencil, pen 

- your preferred tool for using your yarn (e.g., knitting needles, crochet hook, tiny loom)

As a child I grew up around textiles. My Mom and Grandma were always working with some sort of textiles. It was not a surprise that I started weaving, then spinning when I was a teen. Which then led to learning to dye my own yarns and fibre. Over the years l have created many different types of textiles and won many different awards. Most recently, I received an Honorable Mention for my Tree of Life Tapestry at the Cambridge Art Centre.
