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.
