A bit about Kimberly:

As an escapee from the fast lane returned home to small-town Colorado with a passion for fiber art! Kimberly Gamba’s passion actually started with a love of Alpacas and two rescues which turned into 23 with 3 Llamas to boot. With that many animals she needed to find a way to use all that fiber! KImberly started with the usual, spinning but quickly found herself fascinated by felting. She loved the freedom to express myself through the fiber and it’s amazing versatility. As former graphic designer Kimberly found herself drawn to the variety of colors and textures that she could use to create with, it was like having the 64 pack crayon box x100!
