in December 2016 I decided to launch Create With Fibre Community on Facebook, as a way of connecting with others who love fibre and yarn. It means people who have come on a course, bought my books or one of our looms can get on going support. But lots of others have joined it as well, from all over the world. People have fun, learn and connect and I have just loved seeing it happen. So gaining our 500th member just five months later was really a red letter day for me. The most popular thing has been the videos I do especially for the group – about twenty so far, all of which are now saved as a group resource.
I have made real life friends through it too and I am not the only one. Hubby Lee and I and visited Sarah at The Camping Barn in Cumbria England when we were on holiday. We arrived on our bikes to shrieks of delight and ‘you made it!’. And ended up staying for her friend’s birthday tea. It would never have happened without Create With Fibre Community.
Sarah sells balls of her own limited edition yarn, spun especially for her. it is a blend of Gotland and Hebridean lambs wool and very yummy.
