mountainmud's Shop Announcement

Hi! I'm Rachael and I live on the beautiful Appalachian plateaus of Northwestern Pennsylvania with my husband, our Old English Sheepdog, Kenai, lots of chickens, a few rabbits, and a couple of alpacas.

I have been sewing for pretty much my whole life, taught by my mom who was always making us something growing up. Four years ago, I was introduced to the fiber arts and quickly found myself addicted! I love to spin! Can't get enough of it! It's the cure-all for a stressful day and an outlet for creativity. My favorite fiber to spin is probably alpaca, though I have processed and spun a wide variety other other fibers from different types of sheep's wool to hemp, and even plastic bags! (you just never know what you can create until you try). I'm also an avid knitter, but I am often content with yarn as an end product, which you will sometimes find here. Creating items that support the fiber arts is what I love to do. I'm inspired by all the wonderful colors,smells and sounds of creation, as well as the many other amazing artists I've met along the way.

I hope that you enjoy my creations as much as I enjoyed creating them!

Thanks for stopping by!
