Embrace Sweater Season
Joanne Seiff is one of the wonderful organizers of the Manitoba Fibre Festival as well as an amazing designer, author and spinner. She wrote the following article for the CBC on the importance of fibre arts, handmakers and local producers. It is such a well written piece that I wanted to share it here so you can read it as well. You may recognize the yarn in the photo they used as some of mine :) The funny thing is, Joanne lives in Winnipeg and the photo was taken by Madeline Kotzer (CBC) at the Etsy Made in Canada sale in 2014 in Saskatoon. What are the odds they would connect Joanne and I in the same article - it is a small world!

Holy coincidence! I just saw your hat featured on masondixonknitting.com--hurray! Good for you! And then I hop over here to visit and see you have written such kind words about me. Thank you! What a small world, indeed. I am thrilled to see your work featured on both the CBC and on Masondixonknitting and feel so glad to know you. :)

Thanks Joanne! I am so happy to have met you through the Manitoba Fibre Festival and I always look forward to going to Winnipeg. It's a second home to Jeremy and I. Keep up the good work. Your article just describes exactly how I feel about fibre work and I think your words inspire so many others as well. You are amazing
