    Did I read Pasadena???? I also live in Pasadena, CA! Maybe we could get together after you have changed the diapers, mopped the floor, done the dishes and cleaned the house along with doing all the laundry!!! I work full time and still am expected to do all of the above! And still be able to get in my quilting, dyeing and felting!!! I dont spin but I am starting to purchase raw fleece to work with! I just found out one of my friends is a spinner too!!

    Hi – great blog! We’re launching a workshop series focusing on retro-theme pastimes. We’d looking for some guest teachers who could lead a workshop now and then on niche topics within the fiber world. (would love to find someone who could teach a class on finger knitting..stuffed animals, so on). If you have any thoughts or leads, we’d love to know! There’s a link with more info on our FB page.

    Thanks! – Tanit @ The Hobbyist LA

      Hi Nicola!

      Sorry I haven’t responded sooner — this blog tends to get a little neglected these days.

      I’d love to have some of my tutorials or patterns featured on your site. Let me know what the terms are (I always prefer CCC licenses personally). I haven’t written up a lot of these, except for the amigurumi knitting tutorial, but would be happy to.

      I check my other email more often — kdatko@hotmail.com

      Glad you like my stuff!
