Nelly is a fiber artist from central Indiana who took one drop spindle lesson and was hooked! She purchased a raw fleece shortly after and was spinning for a sweater at her first spinning anniversary. Nelly loves to learn about and experience the many wonderful breeds of sheep. She has experimented extensively with blending fibers, and teaches techniques from the beginning of the fiber prep process to blending while knitting. She has raised bombyx caterpillars to learn about silk, and alpacas to acquire unlimited spinning fiber. She is an experiential learner and teacher and wants to travel with as many friends on the fiber journey as possible!
Nelly lives in Alexandria, Indiana, and teaches classes and workshops in her home area, as well as Bloomington, IN, at the Great Lakes Fiber Festival, Michigan Fiber Festival, and Wisconsin Sheep and Wool.
