Amy spent over 25 years as a high school art teacher in Michigan, raising 3 boys with her husband, Greg, on their farm.
She and Greg own Jehovah Jireh Woolmill, specializing in 50% alpaca/wool roving. Amy is the master dyer, while Greg runs the machinery.
During the winter Amy and Greg travel to Ecuador, purchasing fair-trade tagua nut jewelry and textiles from small cooperatives and artisans throughout the country. They have formed many friendships along the way, and enjoy returning to visit the families and the countryside.
Although Amy focuses on her fiber arts as her major craft, she enjoys a variety of other crafting endeavors, including jewelry making. She also enjoys gardening, sewing, quilting, photography, and painting.
