my love of natural fibers began 30 years ago when i learned the art of knitting to make clothing for my children.  my extreme fondness now includes wet and nuno felting and i am continually amazed at what you can do with a little fiber and fabric.  i have wet felted vessels, flowers, jewelry, clothing, purses, hats and clocks (yes – working clocks!).  then three years ago, fortune smiled upon me and i was able to open my own shop, RaggZ fiber art,  where i feature unique yarns and fibers and also teach classes.  my husband and i have a farm in westmoreland county where we organically raise sheep, chickens, goats, and bees and i enjoy sharing my love of fibers (and animals) with anyone who will listen.  check out my website for more info.
