Bonjour! I'm Joyce Fibre Artist and owner of I started spinning yarn a few years ago to have more freedom in creating my clothing and accessories. I love wool a lot, and of course living in Quebec helps a little bit to love the warmth of wool. Im completely self taught regarding all the fibre arts, but Im a former seamstress. I learned the hard way, with short and dirty fleece full of vegetation, a broken wheel and no carder. Read my full story here. I'm inviting you to join my fibre journey in my new studio in Quebec, Canada. xx
