Our Migrating Sparrows have been quite busy! We only have one more pit stop left and then Tweety and Sojourner will be heading back home for a check up and to research their next migration path. The next leg of the journey will have Sojourner migrating within the States and Tweety will be flying down to New Zealand! Tweety had a nice little meet up with Kermit the Magpie and Sona the Sparrow at Stilly River Yarns while visiting with Nancy. While they didn't get to go on many
The Sparrow Duo has been a bit secretive lately as of their adventures but we have had some peeks into what they have been up to. While spending time with Krystle P. Tweety got to spin some TWEED! How fitting is that! It's been amazing seeing the variety of yarns being spun on Tweety. This bulky tweedy yarn looks so super squishy! Speaking of variety the Community Bobbin is filling up! I'm anxiously awaiting for this bobbin to be full so I can chin ply it all. It will be so m

Vampy has been spinning a lot of extremely superfine spinning to push Sojourner to her limits to see what she's capable of. It's wonderful to see how far Sparrow can be pushed to spin such fine yarns. Absolutely incredible spinning!
Wishing you all Happy Spinning and Bird Watching! -Evanita "I decided to try and put Sojourner through her paces and spin as fine as I could on her. 'As fine as I can' is pretty fine, I enjoy entering longest thread contests even though I don't

Evanita here! For those that know me I'm all about green! I live in Western Washington, east of Seattle and it's all about green here. The Pacific Northwest is home to the world's largest Temperate Rainforest, yes you read that right, Rainforest! The Seattle area is known for its rains and those rains bring beautiful green growth with loads of ferns and moss. For my Community Bobbin fiber, I found a little BFL pigtail from Greenwood Fiberworks in the col
Sojourner spent the weekend with James as her Migration entry point to the UK. The following is from James's journal pages. Next stop for Sojourner will be with Rachel S - Suffolk, UK. We are expecting her to arrive later this week. Wishing you all Happy Spinning and Bird Watching!
"Hi! This is James, also known as "Longdrawjames". I am the UK stop off for Sojourner before she embarks on her trip around the UK! This is me modeling a sweater I spun on my Daedalus
Tweety arrived safely over in Washington State at my doorstep. I immediately hauled the box down to my studio and set it up on my photography area. My three Sparrows were very curious to see the new comer! I was very impressed with how well the box held up for it's long journey. The next several stops on the Migration path will be shorter distances. The inside of the box has an abundance of bubble wrap to keep the Pelican Case from sliding around. The Pelican Case, WOW!
Tweety and Sojourner are nearing their first stop on their Migration! They were scheduled to arrive on Friday but the Migration Tracking is looking like they might arrive ahead of schedule on Thursday! Tweety will be touching down near Seattle, Washington and will probably be thankful her stay in Washington will be brief as it's likely going to hit 103F over the weekend! Evanita is planning on doing a live-stream unboxing on her Instagram account as soon as Tweety arri
We have two Sparrows eager to go on an adventure of epic proportions! Tweety (yellow) and Sojourner (light blue) are currently in flight to their first destination on their first migration! The Sparrow Migration Program was designed to help connect the community together across the globe so that we can all share our spinning experience and see the world through the eyes of a spinner. Each participants gets to spend two weeks with a wheel, to take her on an adventure, an
