October's Fiber Dyer ~ Clue #1

Are you ready for autumn? In this dyer's hometown they are getting ready for Halloween, enjoying a month back at school, and watching the leaves begin to change color!

Fibre Club September

As those of you who follow my blog will know, photography (and blogging for that matter!), are not my strongest suit/s. Nonetheless, I am trying, so here is a teaser for the September Fiber Barista flora & fauna club.....

Apologies if it's a bit dark, it wasn't easy to photograph....

September's Fiber Dyer ~ Clue #2

Although well loved for her gorgeous hand-dyes and fabulous color-matching skills, this month's dyer also caters to the budding hobbyist as well. She is one of the two Fiber Baristas that can also be found "behind the podium" teaching classes on dyeing or "behind the counter" selling blank yarns and supplies to the newer dyer.

September's Fiber Dyer ~ Clue #1

Last month we spoke about each of us having their own moment's of fame. September's Dyer has had a few! Our dyer ran with the baton in the Commonwealth Games, but more along the lines of her profession, she may be better known as a published author.

August's Fiber Dyer ~ Final Clue

Ok, August's final clue is here! For those of you who are also in the 2009 Fiber Baristas Sock Club: Postcards From Home, this will be a no-brainer. I'm not sure how into baseball this month's dyer really is, but she's certainly spent some time gazing upon the Field of Dreams movie set located near her hometown.

If you aren't in the sock club Google "field of dreams movie set" and you'll have your final clue!

August's Fiber Dyer ~ Clue #2

You may have already guessed, but we're back on the North American "side of the pond" with this month's dyer. We have a dyer living in almost every region of the US, so to be more specific, we're in the Midwest. (No where near NYC and the Macy's Parade....) Can you guess her now?

August's Fiber Dyer ~ Clue #1

Alright, we're officially halfway through the fiber club at this point, are you ready for more? Don't forget to post pics of anything you've spun in the Ravelry group.

I think if you heard all of the stories you'd be a little surprised at how many of the Fiber Baristas have enjoyed their "9 minutes of fame." This month's dyer has actually marched in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, and her elbow made it onto national television to boot!

Fiber Club - June's Spoiler

My inspiration for this month's fiber colourway was flora and I decided to pick an orchid flower to inspire the colourway which is a lovely blending of pinks and reds. The colourway is Cymbridium and named after the orchid pictured in the card that accompanied everyone's orders. The fiber is a blending of superwash merino and SeaCell and is a fabulous spin! Enjoy everyone!
