Crossville, TN – Katelyn Dunn, although only twenty-three years old, has been involved in the fiber arts community for many years. She first fell in love with fiber arts at the age of eleven when she learned how to knit, and as she says, “It ‘spun’ out of control from there!” After discovering knitting, Katelyn became captivated by her newfound medium. She was determined to learn as much as she could about the entire process. Katelyn’s fiber art now starts at the beginning, or as she says, “I start with the sheep.” Katelyn does most of the fiber processing herself including cleaning, dyeing, combing, spinning, knitting, crochet, weaving, and felting her fiber to create the finished product. She now owns her own fiber arts studio, Dunn Spunn, and has been a guest teacher and demonstrator for many stores and events. Katelyn’s philosophy when teaching fiber arts is “It’s just fluff,” and she loves having the opportunity to be able to share her passion with others.
