Sarah is our current fiber studio artist-in-residence and shepherds apprentice. Her main focus has become sustainable fashion and housewares and organic textiles. Sarah is studying the art of weaving, spinning, and knitting, natural dyeing and herbal studies. Part of her work also includes angora rabbits and goats, sheep, and alpaca studies. Sarah intends to work towards a degree in agriculture and sustainability, along with her independent study in fiber and textiles.

Megan Hill joined the fiber studio staff this winter as our new fiber intern. Megan is a sophomore at the University of Cincinnati and is studying fashion design at the college of DAAP, where she focuses on the many aspects of fashion, from its history and influences to fabric content, texture, and characteristics.
She is beyond excited to work at the farm and is looking forward to learning how to manipulate yarns to make various garments, and using the knowledge she gains about fibers at Nezinscot Farm Fiber Studio to contribute to a new perspective of fashion.
Be sure to welcome her to the Fiber Studio family when visiting the farm this spring.
