Welcome to Willow Springs Fiber Arts Studio

grandma in ww1In addition to having a Bed and Breakfast, Willow Springs also has yarn... and felt... and fiber too!

Working with fiber of any sort makes me happy, always has and I am guessing it always will. At my studio I dye fiber to later be used in felted pieces. I can walk right out my studio door and pick plants to use in my dye baths or use commercial dyes depending on the look I am after. maggie maytagFelt is a magical thing, take a little fiber, a little soap and a whole lot of rolling - in the end you have fabric or a felted form. It's simply magical!

I use an old wringer washing machine to full my knitted projects. Her name is Ms Maggie Maytag and she is great fun to use.

I have been knitting since I was a little girl. My Grandmother knit, she knit socks for the WWI soldiers. The love of fiber and the craft of knitting has gone back many generations.
