Woven throughout our creations, stitched into the fabrics of our work, are intimate stories; stories that not only shape what we make, but stories that become our history – stories that make us who we are. These are our handmade stories.
When I sit at my spinning wheel, I am starting a handmade journey. The fiber already has a story to tell, for it has traveled so far. It came from a farm; was cleaned, processed, then dyed and carded. I sit with it in my hands and place my fingers on each bit as it goes from fluff to string through my wheel. Once completed, the handmade yarn still has a long journey ahead of it. It’s bought and turned into something one can treasure for years to come. It is handmade and has heart and passion.
