Tammy McDow's Profile

About

Where to begin... Well, I am a late-blooming fiber artist. There wasn't anyone in my family that knit, or was involved in any type of fiber arts, so I spent much of my life completely unaware of what I was missing. After an injury at work coupled with health issues forced me to retire early, I was going stir crazy with nothing to do and way too much time on my hands.

Next thing you know I picked up a "learn-to-knit" book from a local craft store, bought myself some cotton yarn and needles, started out by knitting dishcloths and the rest is history!

It's been said that sometimes one door must close before another one can open. I am in total agreement with that statement. Completely self taught, I'm a lover of all things fiber, from knitting to crocheting, spinning to dyeing, and I can't imagine my life without it…

I take great pride in everything I create and if it doesn't meet my own high standards, it doesn't go in my shop. Check back often as I will be adding more delicious fibery goodness on a regular basis.

Most of my creations are OOAK, but with that being said, if you have something specific in mind and don't see it in my shop, message me and I'll try to find something in my inventory to suit your needs.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you find something that inspires the artist in you :)
