Mythical & Magical Inspirations with Kaye Collins

Guild Meeting – April 25 at 11 AM – $5 Guest Fee

Kaye Collins’ interest in reviving ancient arts began with her career as a homebirth midwife where for over 20 years she delivered hundreds of healthy babies in several different states. Spinning for over 20 years, Kaye has received several awards and certificates, including HGA’s Certificate of Excellence in Hand spinning, Master Level, and a Master Knitter designation from the Knitters Guild of America. She juried the skeins gallery, Spin a Grand Strand at HGA’s Convergence Grand Rapids MI, 2006.

Kaye enjoys teaching at various local and state guilds, spinning retreats, alpaca conferences, SOAR, and Convergence. Along with teaching, Kaye currently has a passion for restoring antique spinning wheels from all over the world. Her workshop is located in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado near their geodesic dome cabin that she and her husband built themselves.

Kaye’s handspun alpaca knitted poncho with Andean punta edging is featured in the New Handspun Handknit book from Interweave Press. Check out Kaye’s articles in Spin Off Magazine Alpaca that Floats in Summer 1999, Andean Knitting Winter 2001; Fiber Basics Guanaco and Vicuna in Winter 2008; Angela’s Wedding Shawl in Fall, 2008.
