Knittyspinâ€™s Fiber Fiestas are held quarterly. We invite a group of spinners with varying levels of experience, and each samples your fiber.[We do have enough Fiber Fiesta spinners.] All reviewers are asked to spin, set, and knit with the fiber, putting it through the same process an average spinner would.
In order to have your fiber included in an upcoming yarn Fiber Fiesta, please send at least 8 oz of each type of fiber youâ€™d like considered for review. Multiple submissions [more than one type of fiber, blend or put up] are welcome! Please include a short “bio” of your fiber and/or your business – this is especially important for unusual blends and small-batch fiber companies; where your fiber can be purchased and the suggested retail price for your fiber.
Samples will not be returned. I will contact you to let you know in which issue your review will appear, so you can make sure to have stock on hand.
If you’re interested in having your fiber in Knittyspin’s Fiber Fiesta or have a fiber artist to suggestÂ I contact, leave a comment here or drop me a line at jillianmorenoATgmail.com.
Jillian is the author of the best-selling spinning book Yarnitecture. She is the editor of Knittyspin and Developmental Editor for PLY and PLY Books. She kinda loves this spinning thing and wants everyone who spins to love it too, so she teaches and writes a lot. She knits, weaves, and stitches and tries to do as much of it as she can with handspun yarn. She's always cooking up all kinds of exciting and creative things combining fiber arts.
She likes her mysteries British, her walks woodsy, and to spend as much time as she can laughing.
