Wild Blossom

There are moments in our lives that shape and change us. Some are big, some are small, but they all build up who we are. One of my moments happened 3 years ago when I bought a Strauch drum carder. It shifted the direction of Crafty JAK’s from being a finished knitted object and knitwear…

June 2019 Club Reveal – Rainbows

This is definitely a very bittersweet post to be writing. When I started club in February of 2017, I thought it would just keep going forever.

Many years ago… Eric and I traveled to France on what we call our Quasi-Honeymoon. My sister was living in Paris at the time, so we went to visit her and her husband, along with exploring the various sites and taking a few days in England to visit one of my friends. Not particularly romantic…

December 2018 Club Reveal – New Beginnings

Yikes… spinning and posting of club has become a little bit of a challenge for me as of late. There’s been so much happening and I do honestly feel like I’m constantly running from behind. I’m thrilled that for 2019, some of the club spinning will be done by Rachel of Wool N Spinning My…
