All in Fiber Arts

Fiber Arts Gift Guide

Do you need help figuring out what to buy for the fiber artist in your life? In this post, I’ll go over my favorite fiber arts sellers on Etsy. Recently I’ve gotten into spinning and weaving, to go along with my previous hobbies of knitting, crocheting, and sewing. I’ve been buying a lot of stuff on Etsy lately—there are some amazing sellers who either make their own products, sell unusual products you wont’t find elsewhere, or have good deals on major brands. I’ve gone down the Etsy rabbit hole, and I’ll be your guide for the best finds!

DIY Fiber Blending Board

In this post, I’ll show you how to make your own blending board for spinning fibers. You can make your own rolags with this blending board. You can also pull your own combed top or roving off of the board, so you have a long, continuous length of fiber from which to spin.

Weaving for Beginners on a Leclerc Artisat Floor Loom

In this post, I'll go over how to use a Leclerc Artisat floor loom, and give some tips for buying a second-hand floor loom, setting it up, and starting to weave. Ever since I got my Schacht Flip Loom, I've been keeping an eye out for something bigger. I like my rigid heddle loom, but I wanted to be able to make bigger things, and to weave more complex patterns. I set up an alert on Craigslist for looms, so I had an idea of what used floor looms tend to sell for. I found this one in a local antique shop, along with a bunch of accessories, so I decided to go for it.
