We are delighted to add a new stop to the 2021 Manitoba Fibre Trail at the Wee Wolle Shoppe in Darlingford, featuring handspun yarns and Gaywool dyes.
Owner Laurie Wiebe tells us about herself and the shop –
How did you get started with fibre arts?
I am very blessed. My mother and my aunt are lifelong fibre artists. I was brought up from day one around ‘stashes’ and busy hands. They are spinners, weavers, knitters and much more. I started embroidery when I was 2 yrs old and my journey led to spinning. I love the whole process of working with raw fleece right through to finished yarns.
What inspires the work you do and things you create?
What is your favourite piece/item/colour/etc that you’ve ever created?
The Wee Wolle Shoppe opened on July 30th this year and I am so pleased to welcome everyone to my studio and shoppe as part of my fibre journey.
The Wee Wolle Shoppe and Studio is located at 216 Law Street in Darlingford.
My aunt, Yvonne, and my mother, Marilynn, will be helping me on the weekend as we demonstrate different dyeing techniques using Gaywool Dyes.
