Adam Huntley  My name is Adam Huntley and I am a salon owner in Portland, Maine.  I specialize in cutting, corrective color and Balayage (a Parisian form of hair painting) for the past twenty-seven years.  As passionate as I am about hair I find that fiber, fiber art and yarn are a means to maintaining my sanity and is another form of creative expression that speaks to my soul.  I grew up around knitters.  My grandmothers, mother and aunts all were knitters.  I started knitting English throwing as most people do but was always fascinated with Continental.  So, one day I grabbed some circular needles and cast on a random number of stitches and forced myself to just knit.  Purling was a whole other story.  After a while it got easier and I got faster until Continental became my choice way of knitting.  Then enter my friend Kelly of Romney Ridge Farm and a whole new world has opened up to me. I'm so excited to enter into this new phase of my continued growth and experience as a knitter. Adam Huntley - Lewiston Maine

Joyce Kachinski I've been a knitter for forty years.  For thirty five of those years, I had been very happily knitting with commercial yarns.  Then five years ago I was taking a needle-felting workshop in Maine and the group next to us was spinning.  I was completely fascinated!  I was amazed how you could take a ball of fluff and turn it into yarn. I wasn't sure I could invest in a wheel so I started with a drop spindle which I enjoyed, but soon that was not enough.  I wanted more and needed to learn the wheel.  I researched and tried many wheels before deciding on my Ashford Traditional.  Now I have three Ashfords!  I took a workshop and have been spinning for four years.  I love everything about spinning my own yarn, the feel of the wool, the different yarns I can achieve, the calming effect it has on me, and of course the satisfaction of creating my own yarn.  I still use commercial yarn when needed but it's so much enjoyable knitting and weaving with my own. Give it a try, I bet you'll love it too.
