Becks’ Bio: After a less-than-successful attempt to learn spinning on a drop spindle, Becks eventually dug it out of the cupboard and had another try. Within a week she found herself with a newfound obsession… and the first of many spinning wheels. An educator by trade with a background in film and television, Becks combined her professional experience and love of fibre arts in 2017 with the launch of her YouTube channel, Tiny Fibre Studio. There she shares the projects she’s working on and provides instructional content for other spinners. She also teaches in-person and online spinning classes.
