So, grab your friends and come knit light with us!
Michelle Field comes from a long line of Appalachian fiber artists. She was taught to do needlework before she could read and, over 40 years later, there are few fiber arts she hasn’t become obsessed with at one time or another. She worked her way through college as a shepherd and has now returned to shepherding full-time, raising a flock of endangered heritage sheep (Gulf Coast Native and Shetland) on her small family hill farm. Michelle’s fiber arts specialty is sheep-to-garment creation, including spinning, dyeing, knitting, and machine knitting. She’s also a former Anthropology professor who used to chase monkeys through jungles around the world, which means she’s very good at teaching a wide variety of subjects and is remarkably hard to kill!
