MELISSA GOODWIN- FIBER ARTS

Melissa have been growing fibers such as flax, cotton, french angora rabbits and more recently Jacob Sheep wool for about 20 years.  Learning to spin and weave when she was newly married, her love of textiles and their traditional methods of production have facinated and inspired her to produce one of a kind fabrics that become unique accessories for my clients.  Melissa has lived in Perry County, Tennessee for the last 20 years.
