Jillian’s Spinning: Pinterest

I am in love with Pinterest, I spend time there every day. It’s my favorite way to take a break from work, looking at all of the beautiful inspiring things and gathering all of the helpful tutorials and how-tos.

I just searched Spinning, fiber, yarn and there are pages of  how-tos on making and dyeing yarn. There is a drum carder powered by a bicycle:

Which led me to the gorgeous textile blog Ecologicalartist.

Another thing I love about Pinterest is all of the connections, finding new things, remembering old things,  following what my friends are obsessing about (go look and see how many pins I have on embroidery), what friends are knitting or dreaming about knitting,  looking at inspiring things or to just rest my mind from a busy day.

I want to live here

I collect ideas for spinning, knitting and stitching projects. There are recipes I’m sure I’m going to make. I have a folder for all of the houses I pretend to live in and one for things that I think are cozy.


I’m jillianmoreno on Pinterest and I’ve pinned 8,829 things.

Are you on Pinterest? How do you use it?

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. Spy on her on her website jillianmoreno.com

    I USED to be on Pinterest, but then read something about copyrights and decided to bow out. Don’t have the time to waste anyway, what with homeschooling my son, keeping up with indoor and outdoor chores, running a little business on the side, spinning and knitting when I can, and keeping up with others’ and my own blogs…..

    I am on Pinterest and absolutely love it. I use it to curate ideas for Projects, to keep boards of gift ideas for friends and family, as inspiration for my blog. For about 3 years now, I been getting together with 5 friends every month for Pinterest parties. We team up in groups of 2 and each team, respectively, is responsible for a craft, a beverage and a meal. We rotate each month and the only requirement is that the craft,beverage or meal has to be found on Pinterest.
