Hi there! I am the creator/owner of Ottawa Valley Fiber Arts.

I am a mother of three kids, two cats, and a log home. I am a spinner, and a generally curious person. Ottawa Valley Fiber Arts was created to share my love of spinning with others. I saw a need to use new and old technologies to provide information, products and services about spinning to spinners and (especially) spinners-to-be in the Ottawa Valley and anywhere with an Internet connection.

As a younger women (although I guess I am getting older...), I did not know that spinning still existed as an art form. I was a knitter, and I did not like the quality of the yarn I was using. It was so...uniform. I found some delicious, local handpainted yarn with colors that were alive, but I wanted something with more texture.

And then, I found a drop spindle. The rest is history...and here we are today.
