    Thanks for posting this listing! I was poring through the book trying to find the credits for the fiber/yarn/swatches. I was sure it was there somewhere and I must be crazy or blind. I’ll print this out and keep it in the book – which totally rocks by the way.

    Oh, and thanks for posting about Jacey’s video too. You inspired me to contact her about doing a workshop here in VT, and it looks like it might actually happen. Such an instigator you are!

    I’ll take one of each please. :P

    After paging through the book it left me wondering what dyes you use/recommend?

    The parts that elaborate in the back how to spin certain yarns are better than any book out there.

    Hi Amy, I just got your book and I wanted to tell you “Well Done!” It is great in every aspect; info, pictures, creativity and style. I buy all spinning books because there are so few of them to begin with but yours is truly excellent. I’m inspired to spin up some beaded yarn and use with a commercial yarn in a sweater. I like how you suggested this commercial and handspun. I’ve been doing this for years but many hand spinners think it’s a ‘SIN’! Looking forward to your next book:)!

    I just got your book in the mail and I’m excited that you went to all the trouble to do that. Thanks!
    I love the book, btw :) Just what I needed to help me spin some very fun stuff!

    Thanks for this post, it certainly helped me in conditions of how I can improve things. Speaking of improving, a beneficial way to clean any type of window blind is to use a can of compressed air, or maybe a pet hair roller.
