I am slowly catching up on adding stock and dyeing yarn! Things are going a bit slower than planned as I spent a few days doing Easter Stuff with the Family then, last couple of days doing Birthday Things with the Little Miss.

I am gearing up for the Qld Spinners Open Day coming up on the new date of 7th May 2016! You should come and visit! I will be teaching a beginners crochet class too!

Happy New Years!! Kicking in 2016!!

2015 was such a big year for Fiberific!, one of the things I am most happy about was letting loose on the internet with this website.  It has had many challenges, and such a HUUUUGE learning curve, but I have enjoyed mostly all of it…

2016 is going to bring about some changes, big and small, ever evolving.  This year I will be attending some different events. Starting out the year with the Majacraft Magic 2016 Camp in February where I will be teaching some fun Double Ended Crochet Hook skills!

I am really looking forward to this adventure!!

I best be off, a new box of Chiaogoo has arrived and I want to play… I mean price it and put in on the website…

Have Fun!!

Wow, from one week to the next

Sitting here, trying to fix the shamozzle that is the postage for the website, and I have come to a realisation. I just can’t have everything I want. The plugin that gave me everything, didn’t work, so really it gave me nothing.  The new plugin that I thought would work and give me everything… works, but only on parcel post.  No letter sizes.  Just makes it so unfair for small orders that I could pop into an envelope.  Stamps foot.. full tanty time here. So for now, I am giving up.  What I will continue to do is, if something is small like Blinglets or a single set of needles, I will post in the least expensive way I can, and refund your paypal accounts.. I hate this but at the moment it is the best I can offer.

So not thinking about the evil postage debacle, Open Day Yesterday was brilliant.  I didn’t even get to take a picture, it was seriously a GO GO GO day. Caught up with old friends and made lots of new friends!  Taught a fantastic group of people for the Beginners Crochet Workshop, and I am hoping to see some gorgeous Chainy Cowls!

This week you will find me making lots of Blinglets, dyeing some Sunflower Sock yarn and then repacking the car to head on up to the Ipswich Historical Society Spinners and Weavers Camp and Maroon Dam!  I only take a selection of my goodies to this one, so if you have something you really want, send me a message and I will try to get it in!

I just can’t believe how busy this week and the next few will be, it won’t be long before I am heading off to Bendigo Sheep and Wool Show!  I am hoping to have some new surprises over the coming weeks.

Well I am hooking up a storm, working on some pretties. Just need to sew up the arms and shoulders on a Kauni Cardigan, I am making it in the most beautiful yarn, called Autumn wind, you have to try to get your hands onto some even just to pat it!


I started a lesson with a new student who I thought was going to be a beginner, the second she picked up the hook and yarn I knew, this isn’t a beginner! Wrapped the yarn around her fingers like and old pro.  Muscle Memory is amazing, she told me that she hasn’t picked up a hook in 20 odd years and before that was never a major crocheter had just done a couple of things.  Well she can add one more to her list

In about an hour and a half she has made herself a gorgeous coin purse, her plan is more purple things!  (please ignore the alpaca filled rubbish bags in the background…alpaca…must spin alpaca)  And for those of you in the know, this is my Mum.  Really, I would have thought that Mum and I would have had a crochet discussion by now, but we hadn’t.  Well now we have, and her next visit she wants to make more things. I think she may have caught the bug, maybe just a teensy bit.
