I'm a knitter, dyer and spinner currently living in Chi--er, better make that Berwyn, IL, considering I've just moved.
Going on seven years with the spinning now, though it feels like I just picked my first spindle up yesterday. Now I spin yarn on a small fleet of spindles and my Baynes wheel, frequently commandeering all our kitchen space to get busy with the dyes.
I have a BFA from the Art Institute of Chicago where I trained in painting and printmaking. After graduating I worked for many years dyeing and painting silk while working as a production artist/surface designer for an apparel company, so dyeing fiber and yarn with the same type of dye comes very naturally to me.
This is my first shot at offering my work for sale online with my handpainted roving, handspun yarn and carded fiber batts for spinning. Eventually…
