Announcement   Welcome to The Gift Of Fiber. I have been working with fiber in the form of weaving, basketry, crocheting, knitting, tatting and sewing for 35 years.When you create from fiber you are reaching back and touching the hand of an artist behind you and behind them until you are joined to the person in the cave weaving sandals and mats from grass.Whether I am teaching a class or creating an item myself I am grateful for that person so many years ago that used their hands to leave this connection to the future.
Items are made in a smoke free environment. Included in packaging will be instructions on how to care for your purchase

Dulcimer arrived right on time and was well packaged so it came in perfect condition. This instrument is nicely made-interesting woods and pleasing design work, has really good sound and is a wonderful, unique piece of art. I am happy!

About

The Story of Working Hands

I grew up on a farm which is a wonderful place to grow up. Everyday you see hands that are creating, working, supporting, building. My mother taught me to sew, my grandmother taught me to crochet. A wonderful Navajo lady let me watch her card wool, spin it and weave it into rugs, she taught me to listen with my hands. I love the history of fiber, of skills that go back to the beginning of time.
My husband is my greatest supporter. He built my cabin, he repairs my looms, he built my tablet loom and he encourages me. I am retired now and I have the time to have a shop on Etsy, to explore my creativity and to always be open to learning more.

    I started loving to create as a child when my mother gave me scraps of fabric to make doll clothes from while playing underneath her quilting frames, and my grandmother taught me to crochet.
