Big Sky Fiber Arts - Where artists come to play

I live in Kalispell, Montana against the backdrop of the Swan Mountain range with my spouse, six rescued horses, three dogs, and cats. I am a sociologist by profession. I’ve used my degree to teach at colleges, direct a sanctuary for non-profit animals, teach in the developing world in a health and community program, and work with immigrants.

Ten years ago, I (and my human/critter family) moved to Montana and began what has turned out to be a new chapter in my life. I learned to crochet at the feet of my Nana when I was four. Since then, I have turned to art for joy, inspiration, healing, and community. I love the way art brings people together to share and create. Surrounded by the beauty of NW Montana, I can’t help but be inspired to create. It is here that my love for fiber arts has really taken root.

This passion led to the recent creation of Big Sky Fiber Arts. I love every aspect of the business. It is a joy to find wonderful materials to share with artists. I am always delighted and inspired by how my fellow artists use these products in their wonderful creations.

A desire to protect the environment is central to Big Sky Fiber Arts. My merino fibers are certified by the International Oeko-Tex Association. The fleece used to produce the wool we sell comes from sheep that have not been mulesed. Almost all of our products ship in bags from EcoEnclose, a company that works had to produce packaging that is as sustainable as possible. We are always on the lookout for ways to ship in an environmentally friendly manner.

Don’t hesitate to get in touch with me! I would love to hear from you. If you need a special order, I am happy to accommodate you. Please send me pictures of your creations, and I will post them on our Facebook page. I take great joy in seeing the fabulous art our customers make from our products.

Imagine. Learn. Create.
