Sue McFarland has been weaving since 1982 and after an apprenticeship with a local felt maker in 2004, she expanded her fiber repertoire to include both two-dimensional and three-dimensional felt work. She has a degree in Fine Arts with a concentration in painting, attended the Art Institute of Boston, and UMass. Sue maintains a studio in Conway, MA and sells her work at retail fairs and select regional galleries. She has an active teaching schedule and has been awarded a number of Massachusetts Cultural Council grants to conduct fiber workshops in local schools, libraries and community centers. Sue has been published in Hand-woven for her chenille tapestry scarves and her design for felted and needle woven Temari ornaments not only made the magazine but was used on the gift subscription cards inserted in the magazine around the holidays---which she never knew until last season!
