#259 Autumn 2016

As autumn is traditionally the start of the academic year, our new issue encourages you to learn new skills. Isabella Whitworth’s in-depth Dye Glossary is an ideal place to start for spinners or weavers who would like to expand their options by learning to dye their fibres or yarns for unique, eye-catching projects.
Spinners who love combining colour and texture will appreciate the boost to their creative juices from Helen Melvin’s in-depth description of spinning Art Yarns. Stacey Harvey-Brown celebrates the versatility of weaving with just eight shafts with her amazing doublecloth structures.
Start planning for next year with the mouthwatering list of courses on offer at the Association Summer School, to be held in Hampshire next August.
