I am a wife and mom to 3 grown kids. After 25 years in suburbia, I moved to the Greencastle area. I brought w/ me the remnants of my daughter’s 4-H sheep project, a former 4-H project pony, a flock of backyard chickens, and a determination to relearn how to live in the country and how to use the wool those Suffolk sheep kept producing.
I now live on 200 acres and have approximately 50 breeding sheep of various breeds including the descendants of the original Suffolks and hair sheep from my daughters project and my growing spinning flock of mixed breed fine wool sheep. I’m interested in anything related to homesteading and have a wide variety of hobbies that I am blessed to be able to spend time on, including several fiber based ones. To that end I have a weaving studio which is still a work in progress. I hope someday to be able to informally host weaving workshops for family and fiber friends and dye days for the local fiber guild. I look forward to sharing what I’ve learned in my 6 years of weaving on sectional floor looms.
