About me

I have many interests that revolve around my love of fiber.  I have a shop on Etsy (http://windrose.etsy.com/ ) dedicated to selling supplies with a focus on fibers that I dye.  I enjoy working with wool, soy, bamboo, hemp and more.  I like the process of learning how they take color and how they interact with each other.  

I keep a blog (http://windrosefiberstudio.blogspot.com/) that I write almost daily which highlights what I am working on as well as other art and artists I encounter.  I also use this as a forum to answer common questions I recieve through my store.  In short, it's my way of celebrating art and artists and the handmade movement.  

I have a third venue at Artfire (http://www.artfire.com/users/windrose) where I also sell dyed and ecru fiber, but I also use it as home to my own handmade.  In my early days of crafting, I did craft fairs.  Some of the things in this shop are remnants from those days.  Now, I have less time to work on personal projects, but I still manage to add to my collection.  I have a strong interest in beadwork and I like the idea of incorporating that with my love of fiber.  I think the two go together quite naturally.  I think this began with spinning beaded yarn and developed from there.  I even have a youtube channel (http://www.youtube.com/user/windrosefibe...) where occasionally I'll post short videos.

Not a day goes by when I'm not dyeing, spinning, weaving or blogging about something.  It is what I do and I couldn't imagine life without it!
