Spinzilla: What is the focus of your shop/business?

Dona: We import and distribute Kromski products from Poland. Our goal is to have happy weavers and spinners all across North America.

Spinzilla: What is your typical day like?

Dona: I typically work on various projects throughout the day. I check in on Ravelry and Facebook and write our blogs.  I also help with customers who may have difficulty understanding their wheel or loom.

Spinzilla What is your favorite part of your job?

Dona: Playing with fiber! And helping others to do the same!

Spinzilla: Which of your products specifically help spinners produce more yardage and how?

Dona: Of course all of our wheels are fantastic, but if I had to say, I guess the Sonata would help produce the most yardage, simply because of the portability. And the Jumbo Bobbin holds a whopping 8 ounces of fiber, which means less time spent changing bobbins and more time spinning.

Spinzilla: What about your business would surprise our team hosts and spinners?

Dona: Many people think we are based in Poland. While Kromski is a Polish-owned company and all of the wheels and looms are made in Poland, we do have an office here in the USA.

Spinzilla: What kinds of crafts or other activities do you enjoy personally?

Dona: I am primarily a knitter and spinner, but I also enjoy weaving, dyeing, felting, quilting and pretty much everything creative. DSC_0533

Spinzilla: What is your fiber background?

Dona: I have personally been knitting and spinning for over a decade. I own my own small flock of sheep and several fiber rabbits.

Spinzilla: What was the first fiber item that ever caught your interest?

Dona: My 1st knit was a Teddy Bear. And I have to say, I still like toys.

Spinzilla: Tell us about why you are in the fiber business?

Dona: I cannot think of a better job!

Spinzilla:Why are you sponsoring Spinzilla?

Dona: I love to see crafters coming together for a cause. We can inspire each other and help speed the word about the new age of spinning.

Spinzilla: What is the most fiber fun you have ever had?

Dona: I love it when my friends and I go on a mini vacation and bring along the dye pots, wheels and whatever else we can think of and just play!
