Mary Blythe

Mary Blythe has an appreciation for antiques and history, so has always been attracted to what she considers heirloom crafts like rug hooking and penny rugs. This led to a deep love of wool and handwork. In 2006, she opened The Woolen Needle, a quilt and wool shop in Williamsburg, Iowa. While there, she designed more than twenty-five patterns and dyed the yarn and wool for the shop. Since selling the shop in 2011, she has been designing patterns for her pattern company Blythe Girl Designs, and teaching her technique to others. In the podcast, she shares about her design process, what she loves about working with wool, some of her favorite products, and how she incorporates antiques in her sewing room and decor.
