Additional Show Notes –

The Story of Shiny Dime – During our interview, Amanda touched on the impact of losing her sister at a young age. But, to hear the full, poignant story, you really need to read her blog post. It packs a punch, my friend. I’d suggest finding the tissues. Take it all in right here. 

AVL Looms – AVL Looms is a company that creates dobby looms. They combine handweaving and technology to allow weavers to easily tackle wildly complex patterns. This link will zip you over to their website so you can see more. 

Reuseable zip ties – This is what Amanda suggested as a great way to keep your yarn organized while dyeing it. (I trust you can find these near you!)

Weaver’s Companion Book – If you haven’t had a chance to flip through this lovely resource, this is Amanda’s go-to book. And it’s a good one! Click here to take a look.
