Laura Gaskin
Laura grew up among women whose hands were never idle, learning from them to stitch, knit, quilt, and sew. Stories were also central to family life, leading her to become a teacher and a librarian, all the while working with fibers at night. The desire to combine those interests led her to develop the original embroidery technique she now uses, telling stories in thread. Laura is a member of the Southern Highland Craft Guild and Piedmont Craftsmen. She has exhibited her work throughout the region and beyond.
