I’m a Bristolian handspinner living in Orkney. I’ve been spinning for about 40 years – since I was a teenager. My other interests include music (I play the cello and am learning the fiddle) and heritage railways.

My husband Andy and I own a small farm and have 23 sheep (a mix of Shetlands, Lleyn, a Jacob and a Hebridean), two horses, a cat and Tan, a working sheepdog.
