Friends Don’t Let Friends Craft With Insipid Yarn

So many stripeys, so little time! White Birch Fiber Arts specializes in long gradients and gradient stripeys, full of riotous color, wit, and daredevil playfulness.

My dyeing specialty is technically complicated and labor-intensive techniques that you won’t find in many other places. I am one of not very many dyers doing long-repeat stripeys, so right away that sets me apart. I also go where other dyers do not tread, doing gradient cakes on bases and at lengths that are very hard to find anywhere else. My gradient cakes come in lengths from 200 to 1600 yards, and are on a superb selection of bases – from the same Vermont-grown CVM/Romeldale that my roving features, to baby camel and silk. Very few other dyers have that range.



Recently, I have also started carrying a unique and very popular line of handcrafted buttons, made of natural materials like agate, antler, fossils, burned wood and semiprecious gems. There are even buttons made from fossilized dinosaur bone! No more perfect accent could be found for your perfect stitchwork.

All The Shiny Things Your Mama Warned You About

Hello!

My grandmother taught me to embroider and crochet when I was 10. This is not a unique story in the fiber community but one of my favorite parts that so many have this story. Through the years, I’ve flirted with crochet and embroidered myself into many happy places. My grandmother’s lessons were the foundation to me becoming an artist/designer.

Fast forward years 30 years and inspired by my mother’s knitting and fiber obsession, I create jewelry to adorn handmade fiber arts garments. I design shawl pins and buttons using the 5,000-year-old lost wax casting process. Each piece is either hand carved out of wax or 3D printed in wax, cast in sterling silver or bronze and hand finished by the artist in Los Angeles.

I would love share my jewels with you! Visit my online store, Porterness Studio, with this 20% off discount code: Indie20

Carrying on with family tradition I too live with a fiber and knitting addiction and do not want to be cured.

Take care,
