Taylored Fibers

| Sunday, June 24, 2012

You do not often find such a talented crafter who has meaning and true purpose other than just a hobby when it comes to yarn.  Amber is a fiber artiest with a touching story.  Please allow me to share with you her beginnings.

"I have been knitting for as long as I can remember. My grandmother taught me to crochet. That was as far as I got until I had the incredible good fortune to meet my mentor, beloved friend and neighbor.
I'm a transplant from California and my mentor made the transition to living in Maryland bearable. She took me in and introduced to me a world of fiber I didn't know existed behind those hanks of yarn I bought.
She and her husband ran a fiber processing business and I would always mosey over and "play" as we called it. If it weren't for those two, Taylored Fibers would not exist. She taught me everything I know about fiber and fiber processing.
Much of what I do is inspired by her and my desire to pass her knowledge onto others in the form of my items and my skills. Shortly after we lost her in July 2010, TayloredFibers was born. I will miss her all my life, but she's with me every time I start a dye pot, pull out my drum carder or clean a fleece. ."

Thank you Amber for sharing with all the readers!
