6. How did you get into making stuff?
i had just gotten into knitting when my husband and i moved to vancouver, bc. the wool shop that i liked best and that was nearest my house was literally a wool shop. they had a small amount of yarn, a lot of processed roving for spinners, and other forms of wool for quilters etc. the front of the shop was tiny and there were spinning wheels everywhere. i noticed they had spinning lessons so my friends sarah and i signed up, next thing you knew we also signed up for dyeing, i found 2 spinning wheels at a thrift store and voila! a fiber artist in the making.
