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!
