BuenaSuerte (Emily Sappenfield - Round Rock): make pretty string, both handspun and hand-dyed. My handspun specialties are unique fiber combinations and useable texture – the usable unusual. My hand-dyed specialty is merino/Tencel: an often under appreciated blend that offers incredible shine, softness, stitch definition, durability, and color. In addition I make the ultra-durable Cavewoman Spindles (for beginners, travelers, and anyone who likes to bounce spindles off concrete)
Together we are the best kind of fiber S.N.O.B.S! Pick up a gorgeous and/or hilarious resin spindle from Laurel, select luxurious fiber from Andrea, and grab some string from Emily for a project for the ages!
