About / Contact

Amy Vander Vorste is an avid fiber arts fan dabbling in spinning, knitting, nalbinding, weaving, dyeing, and anything else fiber related that comes her way. She's the owner of  the owner of ShyRedFox and she teaches Nalbinding and other fiber arts classes.

Nalbinding classes she’s taught so far include Beginning Nalbinding, Nalbound Hats and Nalbound Mittens, Nalbound Stitch Sampler, and the Karman Vortex Scarf (a scarf of swirls shapes with a technique she invented).

She is interested in the Viking age and used to do historical re-enactment of the period.  Learning nalbinding was just the next step in learning about textiles of that age and helping to preserve the craft.  She learned nalbinding in 2009 and has been teaching it since 2012 and professionally teaching fiber arts classes since 2010. She loves try to push the craft of nalbinding to new limits.
