the story behind mcfarland’s handwork

McFarlands Handwork is a working weaving and felt making studio located in Conway, MA– a small hilltown above the Connecticut River Valley.

Sue McFarland began the journey of exploring fiber as artistic expression in 1982 as a hand weaver.  In 2005  she apprenticed with a local felt maker and expanded her repertoire to include both two and three dimensional felt work.  She maintains a working studio where  she produces both  functional accessories, sculptural and  hanging work. Everything she makes is designed, fabricated and finished by her own hand.
