Instructor: Leigh Abernathy

Leigh Abernathy has been fascinated by fiber since she first dug her hands into a bag of wool. She’s a spinner, weaver, crocheter and felter. She doesn’t knit yet–but she has learned to never say never! Her textured yarns and hats are unique and highly sought-after.
Leigh’s designs are one-of-a kind, inspired by her love of nature, her need to create and her general joy in life.
