I dipped my toe into the world of indie dyeing in March 2016 and I have never looked back. I started knitting when I was six years old and I thought there was nothing else that could bring me such joy, until I mixed dye for the first time and stood in the glow of the fumes. Now whenever I see a sweater, shawl, or any knitted/crocheted item I start to visualize different color combinations and possibilities.
I started dyeing fiber in my small kitchen. Then I moved a few pots and a steamer to the backyard. Once winter set in it got really cold going out to the porch to stir the pots. I now have a dye studio in Ashland Virginia and three helpers or Minions, as they like to be called. I have been fortunate to take UrbanGirlYarns to a few of the large fiber festivals such as Stitches and Vogue New York. I’m ready to raise the bar to whatever challenges show up. I can’t wait to see what’s next.
I have not retired yet from my full-time job. This is a running joke as to how many hours can I actually put into one day, but soon, I will be devoting all my time to fiber. I work hard to attempt to bring you the quality and quantity of awesome fiber that you have come to love. I have a small support team that does so much to help me provide you with a great product.
Looking forward to providing you with top quality yarns for your next great work of art.
