Abby Franquemont
Share:
Abby , author of "Respect the Spindle," is steeped in the fiber arts. The daughter of field anthropologists studying textile production, she was raised largely in the rural Andes of Peru, where she learned to spin, weave, and more, starting at age 5. In 2006, she left a successful career in information technology to write about and teach fiber arts full-time, particularly spinning. Why spinning? She says it's the most fundamental of the fiber arts – the one upon which most others depend – as well as the most at risk of being lost and the hardest to pass down in any way other than hand to hand. Abby is technical, passionate, inquisitive, and informed; she has taught individuals and groups of all ages and skill levels nationwide, and her writing has appeared in many fiber publications.
