Tammy is a third-generation fiber artist who enjoys sharing her passion with everyone she meets. Her love of sheep, wool, writing, and inspiring others to learn led her on the path of running her own business, Goldieknots Montana, which specializes in Montana grown wool, locally processed yarn and spinning fiber, and Made in Montana handmade gift items, as well as educational programming in fiber arts, ranging from fiber preparation to completed projects which she lovingly refers to as “Fleece to Fashion.” She participated in the Montana Arts Council’s MAP Program in 2016 and has taught fiber-related classes throughout the state of Montana. She has been spinning, knitting, and felting for more than ten years and is a member of the Montana Association of Weavers and Spinners, current member and past Secretary and Co-Chair of the Prairie Handspinners Guild in Billings, MT, a member and Secretary of the Lincoln Council for the Arts, and recently began the Lincoln Fiber Circle in her new home of Lincoln, MT. Prior to moving to Montana, Tammy lived in Southern California and the Pocono Mountains in Pennsylvania where she was a former Humane Education specialist for the SPCA. Her teaching style is fun, creative, and interactive, and when she’s not in her studio creating or on the road teaching, you can find her spending time with her dogs, sheep, horse, and other barnyard critters.
