I raise sheep, alpaca and angora rabbit and uses their fibers as well as others to create hand spun and hand dyed yarns for sale. I also weaves  V shawls, rectangular shawls, scarves, and cotton baby blankets.  New for 2017 are bread basket liners and decorative dish towels .  Always available are the very popular “Wooly Wrap Soaps,” a handmade goats milk soap wrapped in a felted wool “cloth.” I am a kindergarten teacher and am passionate about sharing the fiber arts with others, especially children, having run a summer fiber arts camp for children, an afterschool fiber arts club for children and workshops to help teachers incorporate fiber arts into their classrooms. I frequently demonstrates spinning in England at the HUGE Great Yorkshire Show and for the Rare Breeds Survival Trust.  I teach hand spinning on wheels and drop spindle. One of my angora rabbits will be with me, front and center in the booth, and is always popular!
