A few weeks ago, Martha, an apprentice in 2012, emailed to ask if she could have some of the raw wool stored in the Harwood Barn. When she was living at the Lodge, crafty fiber artist Martha spent much of her time spinning raw wool into skeins that she then knit or wove into various projects.
Since the end of her apprenticeship, Martha has traveled the country multiple times, recently finishing making a documentary with a group that paddled down the entire Mississippi River. Now, she’s ready to get back to her art (though, I feel she probably had her knitting needles with her during the canoe trip).
Two weeks ago, we sent Martha a box with fifteen pounds of raw wool. She sent us this card in thanks. She’ll be writing about, or recording, the products she makes with the wool.
Considering her talent and penchant for fiber arts, plus her super awesome personality, I encourage you to keep checking back to see what Martha creates, it’s bound to impress.
