About me

Shiela Dixon

I'm Shiela Dixon, an enthusiastic knitter, spinner and walker.

I've always loved crafts. After a spell with glass engraving I worked for twelve years as a stained glass artist before discovering softer and more forgiving materials.

This website contains a useful range of spinning items; spinning wheels, carders, plying tools, books. Prices are below recommended retail price and most items are in stock and ready to go by first class post (unless I've sold out, and I try to state this by the item). I sometimes dispatch on the same day and almost always within 24 hours.

Next dispatch: Tues 9 Jan

Please note that I don't have the premises to be able to offer browsing, try-before-you-buy or tuition.
