 Anyone know someone who makes yarn?
I have some fibers I would like to have spun into yarn so that I can knit with it.

I am just clueless as to where to look for someone who will accept fibers and then spin it into yarn for other people.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hey there,

I just went on to the getcrafty.com website after a very VERY long absence and it seems that I cannot access any of the forums on account of being banned. I have no idea how or why I would have been banned, given that I am never on the website forums but the message has told me to contact the web administrator or something for questions. Yet there is no link or any apparent way for a banned person to access the administrator or webmaster since I cant get to any part of the website. Any ideas?
