Lori Patterson

Lori brings her love of Black history and teaching to everything she does. Lori finds spiritual sanctuary in the meditative nature of knitting, spinning and dying. Since 1990 when she saw a woman wearing hand knit socks she has been determined to not only make her own socks but make so many more things from fibers. Lori hand paints yarn for knitting and fiber for hand spinning her Portland studio ( a converted garage) and sews together pretty colored fabric in her very little spare time.
