On the next edition of Fiber Hooligan (12/15/14) my guest will be Tina Newton. Tina considers herself foremost, a colorist and dyer. She is also the owner of Blue Moon Fiber Arts which will be 14 years old this year. She brings to the yarn world a wealth of fiber knowledge that she has collected through her experiences running Blue Moon and her successful sock club, The Rockin’ Sock Club.
As she describes it, her fiber love affair began as soon as she sat down in front of a spinning wheel with a handful of wool. Soon after, she began dyeing her own roving and discovered not only a talent but a red hot passion. She then began translating her color inspiration and theory from her own handspun onto mill spun yarns, Blue Moon Fiber Arts was born and her world exploded.
Tina has a fertile imagination and the practical creativity to support it, her energy is contagious and inspiring. Community has always been an important factor Tina’s life and work. Whether through events, yarn or teaching she loves sharing her vision and working with others to spread the love of fiber, yarn, knitting, spinning, and dyeing.
Tina is someone that I’m pretty fond of. And I can’t wait to have her on the show. I hope you’ll join us.
