I am a shop owner but also an avid spinner and teacher. In 2009 my book Spin Control hit the shelves. It’s a book with a lot of knowledge on a wide range of yarns. That same year I also taught at SOAR and have done other teaching engagements around the country I’ve taught feathered yarns on Knitting Daily. In August of 2014 I made my debut on Craftsy teaching Foundations of wheel spinning. I write articles here and there for spinning publications as time allows.
From Craftsy: Amy King is a renowned fiber artist, author and owner of Spunky Eclectic, a fiber studio and online community for artists. She is best known for her fiber samples and the Spunky Eclectic fiber club that she founded. She is also the author of <i>Spin Control: Techniques for Spinning the Yarn You Want</i>. Amy has been called “a spinning force to be reckoned with,” but really, she simply enjoys helping people get started with their wheels and take their spinning to the next level.
