Fiber folk: Nearly two years ago I received an email from Tanis Lavallee. It began as a conversation, which then spurred a new journey for her and her husband Chris’s seasoned hand dyed yarn business, Tanis Fiber Arts. It’s been inspiring to watch from afar and hear more about the leaps of faith these two have taken in their business over the years, as a husband and wife team, parents and entrepreneurs – so much hard work and dedication. I hope as you get to know Tanis today that you’ll be motivated to pursue your dreams, take those leaps of faith and inspired to stick with it for the long haul. You can find Tanis at tanisfiberarts.com and on Instagram @tanisfiberarts

Fiber folk: I had a great time visiting spinsters Rachel Price & Kate Burge in their cozy studio in downtown Bellingham earlier this year. Coincidentally, the very building that their studio resides in is where I met my husband 11 years ago. It was great to be in these old haunts with new friends and to hear their personal journeys and story, from meeting and working together at the Bellingham food coop to starting a hand dyed and handspun yarn company, Spincycle Yarns. These two special ladies have created something quite amazing, and I hope you enjoy getting to know them as much as I have. You can find the spinsters at spincycleyarns.com and on Instagram @spincycle_yarns.
