Little Cotton String Thing

It's here!

The Summer Issue of Spin-Off magazine arrived in my mailbox yesterday.  I've been a bit anxious for its arrival, because I have a piece published in this edition.  I wrote the Back Page Essay, "Little Cotton String Thing," a reflection on what hand spinning yarns means to me.  If you get a chance, please check it out and let me know what you think.  

This is a great magazine for anyone interested in making thread.  (I have every copy ever printed, going back to 1978, I believe!)  It's helpful for beginners and usually has several in-depth articles to please the more experienced.  This issue has three Canadian contributors, so we're well-represented.

Thank you, Spin-Off editors, for the opportunity to reach a wider audience with my writing, and thanks to everyone who reads the magazine and my article.



  1. Very exciting news! Congratulations! I look forward to checking it out.

  2. Oh I jsut got my issue can't wait to read your article :)

  3. I loved "Little Cotton String Thing"! I feel that same connection to history when I spin. Congrats on a great piece!
