UrbanGypZ Artisan Yarn
Fiber artist Stacey Budge-Kamison AKA UrbanGypZ lives and makes handmade yarn in Asheville NC. Her business UrbanGypZ Artisan Yarn (http://www.urbangypz.com) has a dedicated studio in Biltmore Forest, but, she can also be found knitting in public, hammering out her latest e-course at local cafés in Asheville and spinning yarns in her booth at her favorite arts festivals. A designer at heart, Stacey has decided that her mission is to help fellow knitters, crocheters, weavers and felters embrace their own style and creativity by exploring fiber art as a part of their everyday life. Inspired by handmade yarns, she loves the challenge of embracing the unpredictability of her medium and works to design in the moment, inch by inch as she creates fabrics that showcase the each yarn’s unique properties. Stacey has been designing and tech editing patterns since 2002. A former art director, Stacey has been professionally working with color and design for more than 20 years and is thrilled to take her love of fiber arts and love of print media design into new offerings for her fiber art customers.
