LUXEFIBRE can be visted at her website or etsy shop.
Natasha specializes in recycled fibers, thicks and thins, and many other spinning techniques which create sprials and coils.
How long have you been dyeing yarn/beading?about 1 1/2 years
What motivates you?initially, i just couldn't find yarns that were exactly what i wanted, and then after i began spinning, i couldn't find fiber that i liked. and i am cheap, i know i can make it better and cheaper than i could buy it.
What was your favourite product you have ever made? it is so hard to choose! my favorites change from project to project. i will be in love with certain colors for a month or so and then discover a new color scheme that i adore.
Have you ever been a participant in a Secret Pal swap? oooh yes! i have made some amazing friends that way.
Any advice for the fiber/beading artists? as much work and passion as you put in, you will get twofold out. if you don't take chances and try new things (just like any other part of life) you won't grow.
Are there any designers, fiber artists or any other artist you consider role models? i am afraid to leave anyone out! ladylinoleum (monstercrochet.com), linda from stoneleafmoon.com who just started the yarnmuseum.com which you can contribute your own work to! i sit on the board. how cool is that? jenny dowde who writes freeform crochet and knitting books, amazing! and she did a pattern based on one of my handspun yarns in her newest book freeformations, heidi kinny of mypapercrane.com, the hardest working woman in the crafty world, shannon okey, the knitgrrl (http://www.knitgrrl.com/) herself, who has written and edited a million books and is a fiber powerhouse and so so many more. people who wear a zillion hats and never cease to do new and exciting things are such an inspiration.
