Fayme Harper

Fiber artist Fayme Harper has been crocheting 45 years since her mother taught her as a child and knitting for 38 years since she learned to knit with her left-handed father at the age of 14 from library books. She is a third generation crochet artist, with her two daughters following in her footsteps as the fourth generation. 

Being a child during the creative rennaissance of hippy days, it wasn't a long stretch before she figured out designing her own projects was a lot more fun and satisfying than figuring out written patterns. She figures if she ever has enough time, she could crochet and knit an entire house. Her motto is 'Use it up, Wear it out, Make It Do or Do Without.' and thus every little tiny scrap and gauge square of knitting or crocheting ends up in a project at some point. 

Her four years in college were spent taking every art class she could including pottery, oil painting, needlecrafts, and photography.  Her other fiber skills include stick weaving, tatting, macrame', embroidery, needle punch, quilting and sewing. 

Never one to sit still for long, she also enjoys traditional archery, jewelry making, tribal belly dancing, and writing poetry and lyrics.  She lives in Southern CA with her boyfriend, who is a well-known fletcher, and their two cats Wallop and Rocky.

Fayme, I think you would be a fascinating person to know - it is obvious in your photograph and in your interests. Would love to see more of your projects

fayme, You should check out this handy tool that is free to download and can convert all your instructions into downloadable PDF format. If you do the conversion and submit it to they will be able to publish a link to the PDF on their website so readers who want to follow your work can click on the PDF link and get a copy of the instructions to "HOW TO KNIT A HOLIDAY SCARF" for example!! The reader can print the PDF, put it in their knitting-to-go bag and continue to knit no matter where their travels take them. The alternative is restricting one's knitting time to when you have access to your computer and can sit in front of the monitor to check the instructions which remain on screen, OR, sitting in front of the monitor and WRITING the entire instruction page by hand. Such a waste of time that could be spent actually knitting. Danielle
