Spinners’ Quarterly is a printed newsletter available four times a year, discussing how the ancient craft of spinning fits into our modern lives. SQ takes an adventurous and sometimes humorous look at how and why we still spin yarn today.

SQ’s Publisher & Editor, Lorraine Smith, has a long history of writing and editing, and has been known to wander away from well-paying jobs to spindle across the country and hang out with spinners far and wide. SQ’s contributors include a range of wise and witty yarn-types, including Shirley Scott (Shirl the Purl), Stephanie Pearl-McPhee (the Yarn Harlot), Harriet Boon, and more, all representing a diverse, often comic view of our strange habit of twisting fluff.

Each issue includes colour photos, instructions, and resource/supplier details.

Spinners’ Quarterly publishes four times per year (January, April, July and October).

All issues are printed on 100% recycled, post-consumer paper.
