HOME FOR THE MULTICRAFTUAL MAKER
we’re learning how to make all the things
What’s more fun than taking a puff of fluff and spinning it into yarn? Or dyeing a skein of yarn into something unique and exquisite? Or weaving it all up into a colourful cloth? We find our joy at the intersection of dyeing, spinning, weaving, and knitting, and want to create our tribe of multicraftual makers.
The School of SweetGeorgia is the place where an entire community of fibre artists are gathering to learn about colour and craft. Join us to access an entire library of fibre arts courses designed to get you started.

WHY THE SCHOOL OF SWEETGEORGIA
It’s about craft, it’s about colour, and it’s about to come to life.
My name is Felicia Lo and I’ve been driven by an insatiable desire to “make & do” for my entire life. That passion has led me to become a business owner and educator. In 2005, I founded SweetGeorgia Yarns, an artisan hand-dyed yarn company, and over five years ago, I was invited to teach Spinning Dyed Fibres on Craftsy.com and in 2017, I published my first book with Interweave Press, Dyeing to Spin & Knit.
The big dream that I’ve been working on in the background for several years now is an online school for colour and craft. A place where we can dive deep and learn in-depth about hand dyeing with acid dyes and fiber reactive dyes, natural dyeing, hand-painting warps for weaving, spinning intentional yarns for socks or shawls, and working with colour in knitting, and so much more.
My focus and my desire is to do what I have always done… be passionately curious about creating colour and then documenting and sharing how I’m doing it. My mission and the mission of SweetGeorgia is the same as it has always been…
My mission is to share the joy of colour and craft.
So, if you are passionate about knitting, spinning, weaving, dyeing, and colour and want to see me create video-based workshops for the fibre arts, I would love for you to join me in creating this online learning community.
