Leslie Fesperman  – Weaver, Program Coordinator of The Yadkin Valley Fiber Room

Leslie considers herself a life time learner to all things fiber. She is constantly amazed at the creativity, sharing, and attention to detail she finds in the fiber arts.  As a functional weaver, Leslie weaves lots of scarves and shawls.   Her weaving knowledge can be attributed to independent study, The Triangle Weavers Guild , her time at The John Campbell Folk School and all the weavers she has met along the way.

One of her biggest pleasures is teaching. Through sharing knowledge of process, materials, and technique, Leslie hopes to foster creativity and growth through various workshops offered at The Yadkin Valley Fiber Room.

Leslie is a member of : The Triangle Weaver’s Guild,  The Mountain Homespun Guild, Tapestry Weaver’s South, The Complex  Weaver’s and Hand Weaver’s Guild of America.
