Faith Varrone

I’ve been surrounded by fiber throughout my life.  Born into a family of dressmakers, tailors, home sewers, quilters, and woodworkers who created items of necessity, I inherited the gene that made it impossible for me not to create and to love working with fiber in the one form or another.   I enjoy many areas of fiber art but nothing compares to sitting at my loom and weaving.  I never know what may spark an idea that sends me into the studio to create. Like many artists, I draw inspiration from the world around me, but often it’s the material itself begging to become something more that points to the direction I need to go.

I am fortunate to work in my home studio which houses several looms, sewing machines, lots of yarn, bits of fabric and threads, and includes an area for dyeing and felting. It’s in that space that I feel truly at home.
