An avid knitter, Sara found that the needles in her hands were actually the gateway tool to a deeper passion: fiber. Wondering about the sourcing and processing of her mail-order wools led her to the Master’s Spinning Certification program at the Olds College in Alberta, Canada, (she’s currently in year 5 of 6), and now she walks among clouds of cotton, linen, silk and animal fibers in a studio that’s armed with spindles, wheels and an ominous-sounding hooked stick.
