Looking for handspun yarn from the Pacific Northwest:  Textile Student at Rhode Island School of Design interested in yarns from NW Weavers Guilds. Growing up in a quiet, forested suburb outside of Bellevue, I spent my childhood drawing and painting outdoors. I fell in love with the fiber after my high school chemistry teacher showed me how to spin wool and dye with natural pigments. Her wealth of knowledge and enthusiasm to share her experience lead me to pursue textile design as a professional career. This past summer, I returned to Washington and assisted a farm in Port Angeles by processing my host’s raw Shetland fleeces and caring for the other animals she raised. Working on Gail’s farm and learning more about the Pacific Northwest fiber scene has inspired to want to support and showcase local fibers for my senior thesis this fall. For sample of my past work, see: www.taliaconnelly.com. Email Talia if you yarn to sell or fibre stories to share.
