About Sue Macniven

I teach principally spinning, dyeing and knitting though I also use other disciplines in my own work, ranging from lace techniques, braiding, macrame, crochet, sewing, embroidery and drawing.  I have 30 years experience as a tutor, and have taught extensively to spinners and weavers guilds in the UK and abroad.  I teach day and residential workshops from my home/B&B in Southwest Scotland. I am an assessor for the Certificate of Achievement and have held 2 world records for "The Longest Thread"  I have numerous spinning tutorial videos available to view from my website and am a member of Ravelry (chicksinrubber)  I am also one of a very few women qualified to teach Fly fishing to advanced level.
