Amy King, an avid spinner and teacher is the owner of Spunky Eclectic, a fiber studio that is both a brick-and-mortar and online store. One of the most dedicated and impassioned of the “younger generations” of handspinners, she has played a significant role in the spinning community for years. Known for her fiber prep and dyeing, she is acclaimed by spinners across the country as well as internationally for her fiber samples and innovative fiber club. The Spunky Eclectic shop is focused on spinning and weaving featuring a wide selection of wheels, spindles, looms, fibers, and handpainted yarns as well as instruction; everything a weaver and spinner needs to get going and keep going. Amy is also the author of the highly received Spin Control: Techniques for Spinning the Yarn You Want. YARN Magazine says, “Amy King is a spinning force to be reckoned with . . . [her book] content is killer for those wanting to take their spinning to the next level.” She will be presenting knitty gritty information about color including a discussion of technical terms and color theory that is based in the wool/fiber/yarn industry and the use of color wheels and other tools that can make life with color work better.
*On Saturday, December 5, Amy will be teaching the spinning workshop, The Yarn You Want. For more information and to register for the workshop, contact Mawusi Simmons at: firstname.lastname@example.org
