The Purple Turtle Artisan CollectiveThe Purple Turtle Artisan CollectiveContact: Amanda Scholz
The Purple Turtle Artisan Collective features the work of over 150 local and regional makers, artisans and artists. I represent 6 fiber artists and producers within 90 miles of my gallery. They supply me with original felted works, handspun yarns and beautiful woven and crocheted pieces.
The collective represents the biggest selection of locally sourced fiber in the region. I have 4 hand spinners, 5 dyers, 2 felters both needle and wet, a weaver, roving from 4 different farms as well as flax. This doesn’t include the surface design or crochet and knit work.
The types of fiber art visitors will see in the gallery include the following:
Personally I’m a quilter, weaver, crocheter and knitter. I work with color creating vibrant pieces to lift the spirit. I do not produce large amounts of work at this time as I’m busy representing others.
