Meet the Teams

Without our teams, none of this would be possible!

 

Ellen Zawada 
Owner and Founder

Ellen is a life long fiber artist, and Shepherd at Zephyr Creek Farm.  From day one the foundation of the farm was collaboration in order to promote the US cottage textile industry.  In April 2020 Ellen created the Wool and Fiber Arts group, and along with some amazing volunteers, hosted the first WAFA LIVE Fiber Festival.  Ellen is a spinner, knitter, crocheter, and fledgling weaver.  She raises Romeldale CVM sheep.
