Happy Summer! We are pleased to be starting up a Spool Blog, featuring Spool News (new classes, fabrics, patterns or tools in store), What We Are Making (sharing our favourite new makes), Featured Students (featuring inspiring students), and Tutorials on some of our favourite techniques. We are doing a slow release as we start up this summer, but hope for weekly posts by Kiyoko and Nicole by fall.
If you've got a request for a tutorial, a student to nominate for interview, or any ideas we should write about, let us know with a quick email! I've been off the blog-o-sphere for a few years, since starting the brick and mortar shop, so it'll be great to flex that part of my brain again.
In current news, you may notice we now have a sign up for a newsletter! I'm not a huge fan of the regular newsletters, but we've had many people request one to announce new classes when they come out, so from now one we will release a newsletter every 3 months or so, or whenever we are launching new classes. This year we are launching our core classes from September to June ALL at the same time, and then smaller classes or modifications every three months. So sign up to get dibs on those!
Kiyoko and I spent a lovely day with a photographer getting sweet west coast shots of some linen sample garments, and our linen is back in stock after selling out!
