Marianna Halassy's Profile
My love of working with fibers began a long time ago, when my grandmother gave me my first ball of yarn and a crochet needle and taught me how to make beautiful doilies. Eventually the one ball of yarn was followed by many more and the crochet needle by knitting needles, weaving machines and felting tools and I became a textile artist working in my little art studio, for many years.
Then one day I had to put all of my yarn and needles aside and I had to take a different direction in life, but I did it with the comforting thought that one day, perhaps in my old age, I would return to working with fiber again.
…..well I’m not that old yet….but old enough to know that one of the ingredients to happiness is to do what we really love to do; and for me, fiber work happens to be one of those activities, therefore I am back and my studio is up and running…
