About Me – Tess McGuire

Tess McGuire Hatmaker is based near Mendocino, in Northern CA.

"Growing up in Switzerland, I loved knitting from an early age. Fortunately, I grew up in a culture that, to this day, values traditional crafts. In grade school, girls had to take many years of knitting, sewing, and embroidery lessons.

I discovered felting (or fulling, as the technical term for felting knitted garments is known), when I came across a felted hat at a yarn shop about twenty years ago. I became fascinated with the process that involves using hot water, soap, and friction to turn a loosely knitted fabric into a warm, solid, and virtually waterproof garment. I have been experimenting with different shapes and colors ever since."
