Hi! My name is Joy and I would like to introduce you to my farm and studio.
I’m a fiber artist and a woodworker. I make drop spindles and other wooden tools for fiber folks, and I provide whole fleeces already dyed and prepared for spinning, focusing mostly on rare and endangered breeds of sheep. Other things I do include spinning wool into yarn for knitters and other fiber artists, as well as knitting lace shawls and other accessories for my friends who do not enjoy making things themselves.
I live on a small farm where we raise chickens, goats and sheep. We also have ducks and guardian donkeys, which we are having a lot of fun with.
Can you tell the goose and I had been having a hard day? Fortunately we have mostly good days most of the time! I love to spend my time knitting, dying, spinning and making drop spindles. I have a background in fine art woodworking, ceramics, jewelry and art history, as well as a Master’s degree in Library and Information Science. I like to do lots of different things, including spending time with our animals and walking through the cedar woods that surround our little farm.
We are often to be found at local farmer’s markets, fiber events and other arts shows in the middle Tennessee area so come on out and find us. Our list of currently scheduled shows is here.
