Ask The Bellwether, online home of Amelia Garripoli, yarn poet.

I am taking a break from online sales and studio classes but am teaching online. Contact me if your guild or festival is interested in having me teach.

While I am away, Productive Spindling is available from Bosworth Spindles and Halcyon Yarn, and Power Spinning is available from HansenCrafts.

The website features a top-3 list of posts over on the right. However, I have my favorite posts too. Currently I am enamored by Turkish Spindles, and love the economical colored-pencil spindle featured in How do you Make a Turkish Spindle?.

Fiber fascinates me -- I spin, knit, nalbind, felt, dye, weave, crochet, knot, card, and play string games. Fiber combines texture, color, and design in wonderful ways. I teach and write about fiber: you will find the Blog full of useful fiber information with its FAQ style.
