Instructors or Guides

Kimberly Beatty

Kimberly has been spinning since 2011. While she's dipped her toes in other fiber arts, her happy place is always the process of making yarn. She began with fiber from indie dyers, then moved to processing fleece on her own when she started the Master Spinner program at Olds College. She loves every part of the process — from finding that perfect fleece all the way through spinning the prepared fibers — and is excited to share that love with others.

Jessica Rose

Jessica Rose recently arrived on Bainbridge from Seattle where she had more than 10 years' experience working and teaching at a local yarn shop, as well as blogging and podcasting about knitting. She’s a knitter, spinner, and dyer who loves to play with fiber and color but most of all she loves to knit hats. She’s so excited to join the creative community at BARN!
