About the Expert:
Fascinated by all things fiber since childhood, Sarah Anderson is the author of The Spinner’s Book of Yarn Designs. Her video The Building Blocks of Spinning is an Interweave bestseller. Sarah lives, spins, knits, and weaves in the Pacific Northwest with her husband in a small house full of fiber, wheels, and spindles
“Sarah is such a great instructor. This certainly inspires me to be more adventurous. I've had camel for years and I never knew what to do with it but now I am inspired to try it with silk.”
“This was excellent and makes me want to try all the wonderful combinations. Loved the support spindle demo! ”
“Sarah's simple, clear instruction on blending a nice platter of beautiful punis from a fun assortment of luxury fibres and then spinning, plying and sampling from them is sooooo liberating!! She takes the fear and mystery out of how to just jump right in and start playing with these amazing fibres in a way that makes beautiful yarns today.”
