About the instructor

Jenny Ferguson

I live on my own alpaca farm in Bluffdale, Utah with my 2 teenage children and very supportive husband. We have 9 alpacas, 19 chickens, 2 rabbits, 2 cats, and 3 beta fish, it feels like a zoo! I am happiest with hay in my hair and a little dirt on my toes. My best friend Jodi and I serve as co-presidents of our local spinning guild, Wasatch Woolpack Handspinners. My doorbell is always ringing with customers for my hemstitching business that I run out of my home and I also work part-time for Unified Police as a 911 Dispatcher, it's demanding but I love it!

I have a passion for fiber arts, but especially spinning, weaving, knitting and crochet. I love the feel of fiber in my hands and I’m fascinated by texture. I love novelty and art yarns! My favorite place to spin and weave is in my pasture among my animals. Alpaca’s are curious creatures and it isn’t uncommon to get a nose caught in the flyer of my spinning wheel. Working with my own alpaca fiber gives me a sense of serenity and accomplishment.

I have taught triangle loom weaving at Great Basin Fiber Arts Fair as well as at workshops for our spinning guild. On occasion, I teach spinning classes at my home. My most lively teaching experience was teaching a drop spindle class to 25 elementary school students at once.

I am creative, energetic, enthusiastic and a little sarcastic. My name is Jenny Lynne Ferguson and I approve this message.
