Priscilla Lynch

I learned to sew from my mother and knit as a young child.  After working for several years as a nurse, I became a stay at home Mom raising our three sons.  This gave me the opportunity, if I buzzed through my “home to do list” efficiently, to pursue fiber art.  I have done functional and art weaving, tapestry, felting, surface design, lots of dyeing, quilting and stitching, all of which I continue to pursue everyday.  (Priscilla's full bio is in the August 2020 MLH Fiber Connections newsletter at www.mllhguild.org.)

A trip to the Olympic Peninsula in Washington state inspired this piece.  The old growth forests had many mother trees, some only stumps, that gave sustenance to new trees.

We spend part of the winter in Palm Springs, CA and after wind storms the streets are littered with pieces of bark from the many palm trees.  The bark is very leather like and I brought some home and found that I could hand stitch it.
