LeVerne Tucker — Last Dance Ranch –

“LeVerne Tucker and Last Dance Ranch” …. a great country music band? No, that’s our vendor profile for today! 

My name is LeVerne Tucker, and my farm/business is The Last Dance Ranch.  In 2010, I jumped rubber boots first into farming.  The adventure began with the gift of Loki, the housewarming llama .  Loki was joined shortly by several alpacas,  and my first fibre business,  Storybook Art & Fibre was born.  I am a self-taught indie dyer, an avid spinner, and a lover of all things fibre and textile.

A farm move in 2014 sparked new beginnings on the farm.  Adjacent to a now closed, locally famous dance hall, The Last Dance Ranch is home to Icelandic sheep, and a small herd of dairy goats.  I use only ethically sourced Manitoba fibre for my yarn and roving;  soaps are made from raw goat’s milk from the farm herd. IMG_1115

IMG_1495I am passionate about local goods, and am proud to be a member of Manitoba’s farming community.  My inspiration for colour comes from daily living; this year’s colourways include Alfalfa, Weathered Wood, Rhubarb, and Big Red Barn. IMG_1491

The Manitoba Fibre Festival is an exciting, inspiring event for vendors and visitors alike, and I look forward to sharing my new work with everyone!
