Peggy Barnette – Fiber Arts Festival – January 28-30

Teacher PeggyThe Sixth Annual Oxford Fiber Arts Festival approaches and we cannot wait!

The Festival will be held at the Oxford Powerhouse on Friday, January 29 and Saturday, January 30, 2016, with some additional classes and opening reception on Thursday, January 28, 2016.  Every day, we will post information about one of the 22 classes and information about one of the participating vendors.

Our featured teacher today is Peggy Barnette.

Peggy came to weaving and spinning as a natural extension of her lifelong passion for all things fiber-related.  She has been embroidering since she was 8 when her Mother gave her a book and some thread and said “Figure it out, kid.”  Her love of crochet began about the same time and she has never been without some fiber related project since.   Peggy and her business partner, Penny Nelson, founded Sky Loom Weavers nearly 10 years ago.  They teach weaving, spinning, dyeing using natural and commercial dyes, knitting and crocheting out of their studio in Cat Spring, Texas.

Peggy will be teaching Crocodile Crochet.
