Heidi is a felt artist, and the founder of West County Fiber Arts. She is a native Californian with a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Management, and works as a law office manager. Shortly after attending her first Fibershed Wool & Fine Fiber Symposium in 2012, she discovered her passion for felting. Heidi spearheaded the Fibershed Yurt project which culminated in displaying locally grown and made fiber art, clothing and products in a signature yurt entirely hand felted with local wool by Fibershed volunteers.
The yurt project has lead Heidi deep into the felting culture. She has devoured dozens of books on the subject and transformed her garage into a veritable felting factory. Heidi has taught needle and wet felting classes and is learning how to dye wool and other methods of using local fibers in useful and creative ways. She also learned how to build a peg loom and weave.
