Natural Fibre Arts
I am a creator and love knitting, pattern design, embroidery, sewing, painting and gardening.
Natural Fibre Arts has been established since 2008. I have been knitting for over 40+ years, since my grandmother and mother taught me as a little girl. Over the years my creative pathway has lead me through crochet, embroidery, sewing, folk art, scrapbooking and gardening but I renewed my love of knitting while living in Doha, Qatar and was invited to attend a weekly fibre arts group. It was wonderful to be a part of a group of like-minded people who were passionate about their knitting, crochet and spinning. It was there that I first learned to knit socks on dpns and to spin fibre into beautiful yarns.
Dyeing came soon after when discovered natural dyeing and living where I could explore local markets for natural dyeing ingredients and that has progressed into using wool dyes to where we are now. When I opened my online store I decided to included good quality trusted brands of knitting and crocheting accessories so that crafters would be able to buy everything they needed for a project in one place and save by combining shipping. Natural Fibre Arts are retailers of ChiaoGoo and Knitpro in Australia and also ship worldwide at less than you might think.
I have a few patterns available on Ravelry and Love Knitting and would like to design much more in the future but there are only so many hours in the day. My patterns are always test knit and technically edited to ensure that people who buy a pattern are getting a quality item.
