Mary's paternal grandmother loved all things fiber, except felt­ so in good, stubborn fashion she found her way to felt­making and hasn't looked back. Her love of felt has since taken her to Kyrgyzstan where she lived with a family for the winter of 2013 learning both the culture and skills that surround this incredible art. Having grown up without ever learning to spin, weave, cord, sew, or otherwise attempt to cajole the fibers of this world (or anything else for that matter) into beautiful forms, she is now dedicated to teaching others to wake up this capacity in their hands. She is especially interested in creating beautiful felt for everyday living and continues to work and teach classes from her home studio in Saginaw, MN.
