Natural Inspiration Meets Fiber Art

One of the great things about yarn is that it can be used for so much more than just clothing or afghans. Yarncrafters around the world use yarn for art and sculpture. At the Lion Brand Yarn Studio, we will be regularly featuring fiber artists.

Our first featured artist is the incredibly talented Emily Barletta. Emily received her B.F.A. in Fiber Arts from The Maryland Institute College of Art in 2003. Since then, she’s been very active within the artistic community, exhibiting her work in almost twenty shows. Much of her work is crocheted or felted into abstract, intriguing pieces.

Many of her pieces are reminiscent of shaping in nature, particularly coral. Her piece Horizon, made of old felted sweaters, is currently on display in our Studio.
