About Hand Spinning News

I'm Shiela Dixon, an enthusiastic knitter, spinner, musician and walker. And curator of Hand Spinning News.

The first issue, sometime in 2009, was just called 'the newsletter'. I've made an issue almost every month, and since that first issue it's grown in size, gained a new name, its own web domain and regular features.

It's never been solely about me or my shops (which are all but closed now). Instead it's a curated selection of spinning goodies from around the web. I sometimes use my own blog posts or reviews but try to only use these if I would select them had they been written by anyone else.

The current free issue is always at and earlier issues are now archived here. Paying subscribers receive a longer version earlier in the month (currently around the 10th) rather than at the end.


If you're reading this newsletter on the web and would like it delivered to your email inbox every month, just fill in your email address in the box below.
