owen.marthaMartha Owen began her adventure in spinning at the John C. Campbell Folk School, (founded in 1925), in Brasstown, NC in 1978. Since 1980 her extended family has included sheep and angora rabbits. Also a banjo player (since 1973) and known to tell a story or two, Martha’s interest in sheep and wool, music and dance, have carried her quite literally and joyfully around the world. Some say she is a wool nerd but her sheep say she is outstanding in her field! Martha became a member of the Southern Highlands Craft Guild in 1988, is now a Resident Artist at the John C. Campbell Folk School, and co-owner of Yarn Circle in Murphy, NC, a store catering to fiber enthusiasts.
