We have received word that incomparable spinner, toolmaker, and writer Alden Amos has recently died. In respect for his family’s privacy, I’ll leave it at that for now, but I wanted to settle the questions that have arisen.
Spin-Off is so proud of the work he did with us for decades. As editor, spinner, and human, I miss him already.
In 2009, Interweave founder Linda Ligon interviewed Alden about spinning and wheelmaking.
His family has asked that any donations in his honor be made to the ASPCA in recognition of his love of animals.
