The raising, harvesting, dying, and creating of the yarns and garments we share with you fulfill the most ancient of artistic concepts – that of the artist being involved with their "creation" from the most basic elements of earth to the ultimate reality of vision.
We are able to choose fiber as it walks past us, judging its warmth and subtlety of color, combining it with jewel-like color dyed in our own kettles, then designing rovings and yarns that let you experience and create your own wearable art.
The colorways and texture of our fibers and garments are the reflections of memories of families. Victoria's Morning, Esther's Antique Garden, Hattie's Zinnias, the colors of Scotland and Celtic Ways, Kells Water, Moorland Tweeds, Connemara, the ever present beauty that we are surrounded by in our own valley here in the Indiana County Highlands, Pheasants in the Oaks, Winter Woods, Queen of the Meadow, Mosses, and Mushrooms. Take up our elemental creations and fulfill an artistic vision of your own!
A Fully Functioning Mill & Fiber Studio
Autumn House Farm is a fully functioning woolen mill. We raise our own wonderful variety of sheep, produce unequaled custom rovings for handspinners, develop and hand dye our own yarns, and produce handmade garments of the highest quality. We host a wide variety of workshops and classes and have a guest house on the farm (the Shepherd's Rest) that we rent to individuals, groups, or guilds. If you or your group are thinking of a fiber getaway, be sure to check it out!
Hours at our on farm studio are by appointment only, so give us a call and come out and visit us! We know you'll enjoy your time here. Or contact us today if you wish to learn more about Autumn House Farm & Fiberworks. We can't wait to meet you.
We have recently partnered with Becky Jo’s Farm to open a new store in downtown Punxsutawney, where we have something for everyone, and yarn you will see no where else. It is here that we showcase our fine hand crafted and hand dyed yarns as well as gorgeous garments and “Art to Wear”, such as the fine handwoven pieces by Kathy Dinsmore of the Wandering Vine. For those who can’t wear wool, we have designed our own fantastic line of yarn known as Sagamore Hill, created using complex combinations of silk, linen, cotton and rayon. If you wish to learn, we offer traditional hand skills workshops in knitting, crochet, spinning, weaving, soap making, rug hooking, and basket weaving. Tuesday night’s weekly knitting class is a great time to come in and enjoy fellowship with other knitters. Stop in and join us at the new “Gathering Place” in Punxsutawney!
Hours are Tuesday — Saturday 10:00 - 4:00 PM.
Heritage Artworks Fine Art
We are thrilled to display and sell timeless artwork by Victoria Dicken of Heritage Artworks, at both of our stores. From the animals who delight us, to the colors and textures of our daily work, and of course, the land that feeds our spirit, her images capture the beauty of the life that brought us here and continues to inspire us. Let her work inspire you as well.
