Great Spinning, Dyeing, and Stitching Resource!

Another excellent dyeing, spinning, fibre usage guide. This particular book focuses on the stitching potential of hand-crafted yarns and threads; a refreshing deviation from the usual focus on yarn for knitting or weaving alone. Enjoyable, clear instructions and technique suggestions, well-considered diagrammes and other informative pictures, and a thorough resource section in the back make this a great collection of information for creatives both new to and experienced in the skills demonstrated therein.

While this book isn't intended to be the ultimate manual, this book is chock full of information packed into a wonderful introduction to spinning, dyeing and working with self-created, handspun yarns. There are beautiful photos throughout. It begins by covering various types of fibers and their qualities and goes into the anatomy of a drop spindle and a spinning wheel. Along with the step-by-step instruction, it has plenty of tips to help the beginner get started with spinning and plying yarns successfully on a bottom whorl drop spindle or wheel and how to finish the yarns properly. The author even addresses some of the more common pitfalls in the process and how to avoid or correct them. In the color section, the author shows multiple ways to dye fiber and yarn in your kitchen that are extremely easy to do with very little space using a microwave, stove top, hot plate or crock pot. The projects section shows a few simple ways to use the yarn that is created including knitting, weaving, embroidery and a few craft/felting projects. Lastly, there is a section full of wonderful skeins displaying how beautiful handspun yarn can be as a work of art all its own. Each yarn has a description of how it was made to give the beginner something to shoot for in the future. For a simple introductory book, I got a wealth of information. Extremely happy with this purchase!

I knew absolutely nothing about spinning or dyeing. This book gave just enough of an introduction without overwhelming me with knowledge. It grabbed my interest enough that I want to start my own project.

I love this book, it has step by step instructions and is easy to follow. I like the fact that it goes from fiber to fabric in one book.
