Welcome to 3dogknits!
Hi – glad you have found me!
I’m Jane of 3dogknits Fibre Arts. 3dogknits Fibre Arts is an online yarn and fibre site and shop. I live in Central Ontario, near Muskoka on Georgian Bay. Living with my husband of many years and my 3 dogs, Gypsy, Freya and Gimli, we live close to the Bay and, although it is beautiful, it is also a challenge as our weather is in constant flux.
I am a mother of 4 and grandmother of 4! Life has always been kind to me and I feel very fortunate to be able to have creative fun now after spending many years working in the high tech industry near Toronto.
I am often seen in the Spring, Summer and Fall on my back-porch sorting bags of fleece for washing or hanging yarns to be dried after dyeing.
I sell fine hand-dyed yarns and fibres from my home and in two LYS shops in Ontario. You will find the yarns and fibres I dye in my shop here (www.3dogknits.ca).
The picture on the main page is yarn I spun from some Cheviot fleece. I fell in love with the colour and it makes me smile when I see it!
I have completed the OHS Spinning Certificate Program via Haliburton School of Arts and Design. Now that I am done, I will be progressing to enjoing the fibre world with abandon, joy, making, dyeing, and teaching a variety of textile/fibre arts.
As well as being an indie dyer, I also teach classes on Hand spinning (using spindles and/or wheels), knitting, weaving and dyeing. Please check the classes page for my offerings. If you are interested in learning to spin you can contact me directly at email@example.com and we can arrange private classes if there are no classes happening near you that fit your schedule.
Thank you for finding my little yarn shop on the big wide internet! I hope you find something of interest for you here. I am always available to discuss any of your yarn or fibre requirements and to help you learn a new skill.
Hope we talk soon!
