Jill Dahle loves anything fiber related. She is a weaver, spinner, knitter, dyer, and quilter. Her obsession with yarn began at five years old, when her grandmother taught her to knit and crochet. I have been teaching beginning spinning for over 20 years and enjoy teaching new spinners how to spin.
