Paula learned to make a crocheted chain when she was about 8 years old, but didn’t really learn how to crochet until she was in college, where she also learned to knit. But it wasn’t until the 1980s when she taught some knitters how to spin–and they taught her what knitting really was.
Paula started spinning 40 years ago and continues her quest for knowledge in spinning and dyeing even today. She has been sharing her experiences since the beginning, teaching formal classes since the mid-1980s. She has taught all around the Southeast, as well as at The Estes Park Wool Market in Colorado, the Taos Wool Market in New Mexico, The Northwest Regional Spinners Conference and other national and regional Conferences. She loves sharing her joy and excitement with students.
