About

My business name, Feistywoman, comes from my inability to follow all the rules without question and my constant queries of "What would happen if....?" . From an early age, I questioned the nuns in school and the rules at home, earning myself a reputation as a black sheep (quite fitting for a fiberholic, don't you think?)

I'm a member of the Butler County Spinners and Weavers Guild, where I'm the webmaster and love to teach and share with other textile craftspeople.

I earned my Studio Arts degree from the University of Pittsburgh, have been spinning for 40 years and have won awards at Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival, Michigan Fiber Festival and many others. I also teach spinning locally and at selected festivals and guilds, and have been published in PLY and Yarnmaker magazines. I've been knitting as long as I can remember and am…

I also teach spinning locally and at selected festivals and guilds, and have been published in PLY and Yarnmaker magazines. I've been knitting as long as I can remember and am completely addicted to color and fiber. I feel there is no better colorist than Mother Nature and I am frequently humbled when I look closely at a flower and see the many variations and combinations of color. My fiber batts and yarns are my best interpretation of the wondrous things I see around me. If you have a suggestion for a colorway, by all means get in touch and I'll see what I can do.

Quality is important to me. I feel that, if you're going to spend a lot of time creating something, your materials should be the best you can acquire. I use top quality fibers in my yarns, and spin the best possible yarn for your project. I've been in business locally as a handspinner since 2004, and I bring my years of experience to satisfying my customers needs. If you have an idea for a special project requiring unique handspun yarn or fiber, don't hesitate to get in touch to discuss how we can bring this project to life for you.
