A spinner and a knitter at the Southern Highlands Art Show in Asheville photo by elizabeth gordon
from you tube
There are so many craftsmen and women in the highlands of the Southeast, it is quite amazing. I took this photo for a friend in Tampa who is a spinner. She even uses her pet rabbits' fur. Some people use sheep's wool, others raise Llama or Alpaca. Behind these ladies were bags of raw wool for sale as well. There is something to love about a skill and art being passed from generation to generation!
