5. Do you make fiber/yarn/etc. full-time?
No, not full-time. Only on nights and weekends. For now...

6. How did you get into making stuff?
Learned how to spin 3.5 years ago and it became an instant addiction. Then when I learned how to spin, I knew it was all I wanted to do!

7. How long have you been doing this?
About three and a half years now.

8. Where do you find inspiration?
Mostly in the need to create things. To create beautiful things. And I am also inspired by other fiber artists and the talent and creativity that each of us has.

9. Any funny stories, words of wisdom, something else to share about you or your business?
Nothing much. Other than people are constantly amazed at the sheer mass of yarn and fiber that I have managed to accumulate in just the 3 years that I have been obsessed with my hobby! :-)
