I have been a passionate knitter for over 25 years and love all types of yarn, but especially wool.

Shortly after beginning work at the Museum, I began to sell my Handspun yarn and hand knit items in the museum store. Folks buying items loved the items I made with my handspun as well as my hands spun and hand dyed yarns and they sold very well. I was even able to develop a hand dyed yarn line based on the colors of the museum. I am now working to do the same with handspun yarn and the same colorways

For those with allergies, I don't smoke but I do have 1 adorable miniature poodle.

Trivia about me: We live full time in our 5th wheel camper and take my shop with us! We are helping struggling Baptist churches and help plant new churches here in America.

I hope you enjoy looking through my shop.

My handspun and hand dyed yarn is photographed to show the colors and texture. I also give a good description of the feel and fiber content of my hand spun and hand dyed yarns. Please understand that your monitor might not reflect the colors as they appear in the true form and that hand dyed yarns vary from skein to skein.
