Hi, I'm Brenda.
I'm a fiber artist, teacher, and writer.
And I really wish we were meeting face-to-face right now!
If we were, I could hand you a big 'ole steamy mug of your favorite beverage, and as the scent wafts, maybe you'd start feeling all hygge: you know that trendy word for a comfortable feeling of contentment.
That's how I feel when teaching fiber enthusiasts like you.
Because my work is about making a positive difference.
In other's lives with textile crafts and fiber art. And it includes collaborating with small growers, indie dyers, and craftspeople, providing our community with tools and equipment to support our work.
It's about people.
I love meeting and sharing my techniques for processing fiber into finished products with existing and soon-to-be fiber friends. There is a true joy in teaching tips and helping fiber enthusiasts discover a fiber for the first time. It's like a journey where we all gain from each other's experiences in our educational classes.
Maybe you have heard the news...
I suppose it's time to share the secret. And who knows, you might want to help spread the word.
Now, after great thought and deliberation, I'm making this announcement today. It was not a decision I come to lightly. I've decided it's time to share my Fiber Art Studio Journal.
This is a deeply personal decision, as you can imagine. It's with the hope of building community... and the need to have a safe place to share my studio life and business experience.
Yes, I'm talking about the journal I use to sketch out projects, study notes, and the things I find fascinating-helpful tips to make life easier. And with a purposeful focus on living a fulfilling life well. You can be sure there are life hacks to help with the work-life balance struggle for families.
I'll be sharing all this in newsletter form. And it's the best way to stay in the know of what's happening here in the studio too.
