Those of you familiar with Akerworks™ products may already know Akerworks™ bobbins were designed by an engineer and an architect to make spinning enjoyable and relaxing. You also may know that you can choose among twenty colors and six styles for the 3D-printed whorls—or that the bobbins break down for easy travel and storage. But… did you know that Akerworks™ bobbins hold more fiber, for most styles, than the related manufacturer’s bobbin? Akerworks™: We like making things.

Gigi has a Loop batt that she wants to use. Jasmin suggests spinning it as a single. She suggests reading the article in Ply magazine. Also, Jasmin has been spinning on the Device to practice. Join Team Sasquatch.
And Sew On:(54:03)
Gigi is planning to sew preemie shirts. She downloaded patterns from twentyfiveandfour.com (patterns range from 1lb to about 7.5 lbs in seven different sizes), printed them out and made plastic templates.
Copied patterns on them, and cut them with the all purpose scissors. She can't cut around them with rotary cutters, curves are too tight. She is thinking of getting some interfacing to use as a re-useable pattern . Sturdy, and somewhat sheer. And she can pin into it.
