Welcome to My Spin on Things, my name is Janet Day (formerly Knoop) and I am a textile artist and tutor. Bear with me as I tell you a little about myself and this passion I have for fibre, spinning and textured weaving.
I have a background in Fashion and Design and attended the Emily McPherson College pre RMIT in Melbourne. I worked in the fashion industry for many years and really enjoyed my time with Vogue Colours as a Colour consultant. In 2001 I attended a Hand Spinning class run by the ladies of Horsham and I instantly knew that I had found a craft that nourished my creative side. I was fortunate to be taught by highly qualified and respected hand spinners who valued the foundation techniques of hand spinning and fibre preparation. So when I discovered Art Yarn Spinning through Lexi Boeger, I had a sound basis upon which to explore more adventurous techniques.
I now tutor at the Victorian Hand Weavers and Spinners Guild and Woolarium as well as run workshops on Spinning and Colour nationally and internationally. I have exhibited my works in various exhibitions and sell my yarn and hand dyed fibre batts to knitters and spinners all over the world.
Every person whose craft relies on a piece of equipment, knows that quality and performance plays a vital role in the pleasure and the end result of their creative project. That’s why My Spin on Things offers a range of quality Spinning Wheels, Looms, Carders and other related items which I personally use. Spinners, knitters, felters and weavers will find something at My Spin on Things. I am passionate about sharing and helping build the popularity of this craft and I love to share information in order to do that. I look forward to any questions you may have I am more than happy to help with information that will enable you to make the right choice in relation to your creative journey.
