This website is dedicated to my lifelong passion for textiles.

There is information on my Spinning, knitting and Tatting workshops and courses which can be attended as day participant or as part of a residential holiday. We have 3 bedrooms sleeping up to 6 people so can accommodate small groups. See

The Archives section has lots of interesting information which has been accumulated over a period of 30 or so years. Including details of my entries into the ´┐ŻLongest Thread´┐Ż competitions.

If you are a hand spinner why not take a look at one of my videos, they have been well received by the spinning community and cover all of the most basic things as well as some more advanced techniques.

I can be found on Ravelry as Chicksinrubber
And on Facebook as Sue Madle /Handspun-exotics.
