March 1st-5th of 2023 kicks off the very first Daedalus Fly-In retreat! We will have 9 vendors and we’ll be featuring each vendor over the next several weeks on our Instagram and Facebook page. Over the past two weeks we have been featuring Jill and Nik of Hipstrings.
Hipstrings is a fiber arts company founded by Jill and Nicolas Duarte with the purpose of using "new" materials and technology to bring a modern twist to the ancient fiber arts. We love the way they use new technologies to create modern tools that are both functional and beautiful.
In addition to their awesome tools they also dye gorgeous fiber from wool blends to cotton as well as several lines of yarns!
For those who have been interested in spinning cotton they carry EZ Spin cotton which is a wonderful cotton to start learning to spin cotton with. They also have a Cotton Club for beautifully dyed cotton!
The WIP gauges are a must have for any spinner!
