Two of fiber artists’ favorite woods: Purpleheart from South America and Padauk (I say “PA-dook”) out of Africa are always featured prominently in every batch of handspindles emerging from the woodshop.

Hatchtown Farm is tucked away on the Pemaquid peninsula in midcoast Maine, a delightful spot steeped in history and natural beauty. We share this old farm with Gemma, a bouncy Goldendoodle, Hera and Hermes, a sister and brother team of felines, a flock of registered Coopworth sheep and a mixed bag of laying hens with a sometime smattering of pigs thrown in just to thwart possible boredom.
