Roan Creek Weaving and Farm is focused on God, family, fiber arts and farming. We have the usual farm menagerie along with jacob sheep and french angora rabbits to supply my spinning wheel and looms with countless hours of occupation. We also sustainably manage over 100 acres of hardwoods, and grow a large garden of heirloom vegetables.

SEPTEMBER IS ALMOST GONE!
The nights are cooler and the awful humidity is almost a memory and it's time to get busy with tidying the farm up for the winter. First the turnips and mustard had to be sown.
Then the bunnies had to be plucked and some of my special Sari Bunny yarn made.....
Then a soft Sari Bunny Scarf woven and a teasel picked to brush it just right.....
And of course there is the Tennessee State Fair Sheep to Shawl 2012! Here we are holding the finished shawl! I took a white wool warp in a point twill with plain weave borders. Brenda (second from your left) dyed some of her beautiful shetland wool and it came together as Galena's (first on right)" New Citizen Shawl -Red White and Blue with just a hint of green for her eyes".
