For those who know me well, you will know that I'm also passionate about knitting and yarn. So naturally, as the New Year began, I started to come up with a new project in mind - featuring local artisans/artists.
This vision came up as I realized just how much I appreciate people working with their hands to create something wonderful. I am blessed to already know Meagan, a skilled yarn spinner; founder and owner of Ginkgoknit. https://ginkgoknit.wordpress.com/
She was the first person I wanted to ask, and the first person to say yes! I was so excited to visit her in her home, where she does her spinning on her beautiful wheel. Take a look at some of the highlights from the shoot :)
Meagan's home that I visited in the past, was always a very calm and peaceful place. With wood accents and warm tones, it was a joy just to be in. Added to the fact that I would be taking photos of something that I loved watching, made it that much more pleasant.
Spinning yarn takes a lot of skill, patience, and preparation. But the end results are always beautiful, satisfying, and will last a long, long time. Meagan provided all the visuals I would have wanted for this shoot, and I must say that I loved every morsel of it... especially being able to touch and feel the soft fibers she was using and had spun into scrumptious yarn.
It was a pleasure having this photo shoot and the editing afterwards, as Meagan is a natural beauty and the love for what she does translates into her finished products. I had the chance to chat with Meagan about yarn to our hearts' content, and she taught me bits and pieces about not just the spinning process, but also about herself, which was an honour.
Her adorable kitties were also around, which made the experience all the more "homier", as I'm a cat lover too.
Thank you Meagan, I truly enjoyed the time together and hope to see you again soon!
