Beth Myrer began exploring of textiles as a child while sewing shorts for summer, and progressed from there. She taught herself to knit and crochet, and progressed on to embroidery and lace making. In the 1990’s she was able to take a weaving class, and learned to love the art of creating cloth. Weaving exposed Beth to spinning and felt making. Beth has taught at EGA Rocky Mountain Regional Seminar, as well as, in the local Embroiderer’s Guild, and Weaver’s Guild.
