Spinning Jenny's Links Page

I am bad at updating this site, but I try to keep a notebook on my current work and comments about interesting sites I find on my fibre blog.

Guilds and Societies

The Association of Guilds of Weavers, Spinners, Dyers.

My local guild, the Berkshire Guild of Spinners, Weavers and Dyers.

The Braid Society is an international society dedicated to braids, bands and other 'narrow wares'.

TWIST is for anyone interested in tablet weaving (aka card weaving).

Complex Weavers - don't let the name deter you, as Complex Weavers has study groups for many forms of weaving that don't require a lot of shafts, and even kumihimo and bobbin lace.

Fibre Craft Links

There are some really helpful sources of information on the Web. I'll just mention the main ones - they have links to so many places!

At Ron Parker's Fiber Home , you can find an up-to date list of fibre (and yarn) related mailing lists , as well as a lot of other useful information.

Wool Works is my first stop for information on knitting (and some spinning).

The Spinning Wheel FAQ covers a lot more than just wheels - it also has links to a lot of spinning and fibre related sites.

For general fibre information, FiberLink is very good.

Textile Links covers fibre and textiles.

For weaving, try the Weaving Resources page.

Weavershand focuses on tablet weaving (aka card weaving), kumihimo (Japanese braid making) and ply-splitting.

Miscellany

I hope to get around to adding links here soon, as I renovate the rest of this site.

If you like Celtic art as much as I do, you'll love Aidan Meehan's Coracle page and find his bookmarks invaluable. They include links to some wonderful pictures from the Book of Kells, and to useful sources for constructing your own Celtic designs.
