“Welcome to The Loft Fibre Arts. My name is Marilyn Mantik and I am the maker of unique things, and purveyor of fine yarns, knitting and crochet accessories, and other interesting items.”
I grew up with a love of making, living on a farm and being taught by my talented, industrious mother to knit, crochet, sew and embroider. I also learned to be curious about making new things as she would take any and all courses that were available in our small town, including painting Easter eggs, making mukluks, weaving baskets, decorating cakes, and many others. As an adult, I followed in her footsteps, learning to needle & wet felt, hand dye yarn, spin, quilt, make willow wreaths & baskets, paper craft, …
My main love, however, is all things fibre. I am always making, and started selling my creations and yarn to help finance my woolly addiction. I also teach and would be happy to talk to you about what you would like to learn to create. I hope you find something in my collection of things that calls to you, makes you smile, or makes you think of a special person. And I hope the yarn and needles inspire you to make.
