All the hand dyed products are dyed in my home studio in the enchanted Pacific Northwest of the United States. I have been a professional fiber artist for 20 years, and am continually finding new inspirations for colorful expressions.
Hand embroidery and cross stitch was my very first fiber art when I was just a small child. Since then, I've been on a non-stop journey of creation! I found my love of knitting just after my mother passed away some years ago. I discovered the busyness it provided my hands also provided me hard-to-find peace and comfort. A little knitting therapy is still exactly what brings me continually back to my favorite go-to knitting project: a plain vanilla sock. I delight in watching the colors develop and play while my hands do what they know to do. A near obsession with hand spun socks was the compelling force that led me to hand spinning with a drop spindle and then a wheel. I was already commercially dyeing textiles when my love of yarn began; dyeing my own yarns and fibers was a natural progression! Natural fibers and soft sturdiness are must haves with all the fibers I create with, and all I offer to you as well.
I've been a sewist for over 20 years, (embroidery, patchwork, and clothing are my favorite needle and thread projects) am also a small organic farmer, a mama to half a dozen humans, a proud Cascadian, a passionate mycophile, and an enthusiastic outdoor adventurer.
I look forward to knowing you and sharing in the delight of your creations!
