    Felted Snowman & Tree

About twenty years ago I was making Mohair teddy bears when I heard of a craft called needle felting. I wasn’t sure how it was done but the little felted teddy bear head I saw was interesting, so I decided to take a three-hour workshop to see what it was all about. Little did I know how quickly this craft would become my passion and how it would start me on the path of creating wonderful things from wool and teaching others about this amazing process! It wasn’t long before all my other crafts went into the storage closet and wool overtook my craft room. Soon I was selling my felted creations at show. One day when I was buying wool at a shop, I was approached by the owner to teach a felting class. I was scared of the prospect but jumped in. Now, after fifteen years of teaching classes, I thoroughly enjoy sharing my love for felting with others. I continue to learn from others as well. I describe my felting style as whimsical and some of my favorite items are gnomes, dragons, mushrooms and animals.

    Soft Sculpture Barnabee Black Sheep

As a fiber artist, interior designer and certified ILR-SD Llama Fleece Judge, I have been involved with fiber since my first purchase of Forrester, my llama. Since then Forrest Ridge Llamas and Alpacas houses six llamas, two alpacas and one sheep for a variety of natural, eco-friendly fibers. My specialty is needle felted, dimensional, soft-sculptured animals and birds. Using my design for a horseshoe nail frame and copper wire feet, these critters come to life with expression and depth using 36, 38, 40 and 42 gauge felt needles and eco-friendly natural fibers. All my designs are one-of-a-kind and are inspired by nature and the driftless region surroundings. All fiber has a purpose and my passion is to work with natural fleeces and to be a part of a heritage culture of handcraft pieces of “fiber art.”

    Spinner’s Toolbox: Supported Long Draw

From childhood days tending fiber animals, Julie’s path spun a pattern of passion. Her college studies, blending secondary education with costume design, mirrored the artistic potential she saw in every fleece. Spinning and weaving became natural extensions of raising her “furry friends.” Soon, Julie found herself sharing her knowledge across the U.S., from Wisconsin’s sheepy fields to Oregon’s fiber flocks. Nestled in Arizona’s Sky Islands, her ranch, Tangled Yarn Farms, reflects this dedication, specializing in Navajo heritage breeds and heirloom cottons. Her teaching style, infused with love for natural fibers and the joy of learning invites students to follow their own creative threads.

    Knitted Gloves

I have been involved in the fiber arts world for most of my life, as well as raising sheep. The real start was when I had my first black lamb born. At the time, the price for colored wool was nothing: literally I would have to pay the shearer to take it. Instead, I decided to make use of the fiber. Being raised in a family that was makers, it was not that hard to come up with ideas on how to use the wool. But I was faced with the fact that the way was being taught was not what was written in books. With that knowledge, I decided to follow the old ways and refined my craft by doing and using my products. Now, it’s nothing out of the ordinary for me to be dressed in wool clothing while feeding the sheep that provided the fiber in the first place. I enjoy passing on the ways of generations past that have been passed on to me and showing people there is more than one way to do a certain thing and to stretch the boundaries of what they are capable of doing.

    Rug Hooking

Years ago I taught myself primitive rug hooking which is an early American art. In my work I use both recycled wool material as well as new and turn it into a hooked piece. I want my hooking and kits to appear old, therefore I over-dye the wool and use different textures to help build the hooked pieces. My theme, texture and color of the rural landscape that emerges in my work is influenced by my family life on a large working cattle and sheep farm. I have been rug hooking since the early 1980s and teaching for over three decades. In addition making up kits for other rug hookers, I sell my own rugs and do commission pieces. I enjoy this art and have been able to share it with others through teaching, demonstrations and kits, I always look forward to making new friends through the shared love of this art form.

    The Basics of Brioche Knitting

My husband and I started the family llama farm, Pine Knoll Llamas, in New London, WI in 1988, moving it to Clintonville six years later. My passion for fiber began at a llama outing where I saw llama fiber being combed and an internal switch was flipped on that changed my life forever! I love shearing my own llamas and processing my own wools and fibers. I love every aspect of wool and every level of processing it, as there is no greater joy than to take a fleece and to work with it to see the finished product. We opened a full retail yarn shop in 2010 called the Copper Llama, but after eleven years we closed it and moved to Oconto, WI where our llamas are now enjoying a view of Green Bay.

    Expanding the Life of a Sweater with Visible Mending

My first introduction to mending was when I was eight and my toes poked out of my socks. My mother handed me an old cigar box with various needles, embroidery floss and a light bulb. The box had belonged to my grandmother. My mother does not mend, but explained why the light bulb was in the box and that I was on my own. I was an earlier adapter of the visible mending movement with my attitude of “I like purple and I don’t care who sees it.” I am the proprietor of Purveyor of Fine Yarns in Madison, working with local shepherds and woolen mills to create single breed yarns – view at
