Mary Berry has had her hands in the fiber arts for pretty much all her adult life. Ask her about how she got started and she will tell you, “I learned to knit and crochet in my 20’s, to weave in my 30’s, to spin in my 40’s, and to dye and rug hook in my 50’s! When I was 52, I convinced my husband to buy 15 acres in the country, where we still live, so that I could raise Shetland sheep, Angora goats, and Suri alpacas. I’m surprised to this day that he said yes, but he did!
Mary’s background and education make her a natural for owning a fiber arts store and teaching fiber arts classes. She holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Management, and a Master of Arts degree in Teaching. Prior to moving to Farmersville, she taught middle school English/Language Arts in the Carrollton/Farmers Branch School District. “Teaching is my dream job,” she says. “Teaching fiber arts is Nirvana!”
