This website is dedicated to my lifelong passion for textiles.

There is information on my courses and workshops which can be attended as day participant or as part of a residential holiday. We have 3 bedrooms sleeping up to 6 people so can accommodate small groups. See

The Archives section has lots of interesting information which has been accumulated over a period of 30 or so years. Including details of my entries into the “Longest Thread” competitions.

If you are a hand spinner why not take a look at one of my videos, they have been well received by the spinning community and cover all of the most basic things as well as some more advanced techniques.

I can be found on Ravelry as Chicksinrubber
And on Facebook as Sue Madle /Handspun-exotics.
