Hi, my name is Leila. I love sewing, spinning, weaving, and gardening. My long term goal is to grow, spin, knit and weave fibers to make clothes for my family. I’m taking it a step at a time. First I’m learning to make clothes that really fit, because if I’m putting hundreds of hours into a garment, I don’t want it to be uncomfortable and look like a blocky art project.
I plan on growing sheep, flax, and possibly nettles. There is plenty of information available on working with wool and other animal fibers, but few people are growing plant fibers at home these days. I’m excited about rediscovering those skills.
Feel free to comment on any of my posts, no matter how old they are. I’d love to hear what you have to say.
