Hellooo and welcome back!
This is now a bloggy sort of website and I am so excited about the next phase of Create With Fibre. I am busy creating new online courses right now so watch this space.
I have left the Knit 1 Bike 1 posts below so that you can see them at any time. The book is still out there of course as is the How to Spin Just About Anything book, the natural dyeing and art yarns e-booklets and of course the Learn to Spin and Learn to Weave courses.
There is a FREE episode of both the Learn to Spin and the Learn to Weave course if you follow the links below. To buy the courses, you need to register and create an account, because you get your very own dashboard where you access the different videos in each course.

To Buy the books
email email@example.com. cost is £12.95 post free. £2 is donated to Labour Behind the Label for each book sold. and thanks to everyone who is prepared to buy direct from the author. The books cost pretty much the same on Amazon once you add the postage anyway. But this way, I get the profit and not them.
How to Spin Just About Anything
A comprehensive book that really does show you how to spin. It covers both spindling and spinning wheels. The reviews have been excellent and it just keeps on selling. I wrote it because all the books I could find managed to gloss over the details of how to actually spin. So I analysed the process, we took lots of photos and devised step by step instructions, just like I teach in real life.
A money back guarantee from me if you don't like it.
Knit 1 bike 1
The story of my amazingly good fun, epic ten week, 850 mile cycle round Scotland on my folding bike. I delivered 22 workshops en route, camped, stayed with fellow textile enthusiasts and had an absolute ball. I crocheted and knitted what I saw and the resultant exhibition toured Scotland, getting on Border TV, Radio Scotland and in national newspapers. Look at previous blog posts to see the art work, including a 16ft long crocheted version of the Glenfinnan Viaduct complete with train.
The book has been enjoyed by many. With comments like 'My cousin missed her GP appointment because she was so absorbed in this book that she didn't hear her name'. And 'I was up all night because I had to know what happened next'.
