Hillary Dow Felting Master Class Instructor fiber artist, author and illustrator

Born and raised in the rural mountains of Maine, I still call the Pine Tree State my home. Inspired by the beauty and splendor of nature, each day I soak in the influences around me. In 2019 I launched my own indie publishing company, Binding Tales. I channel the joy and adventure of our life into unique works of art, illustrated with wool locally sourced from Maine fiber farms. My tagline is legit, From Farm to Bookshelf. My other professional career rests in marketing. I currently lead a small in-house marketing agency for an auto group representing 14 brands, with dealerships across Maine. I used to say that I would illustrate children’s books when I retire, someday. I’ve grown wiser over the years and now make time multiple days a week to bring my stories and illustrations to life. A full-time career, two active children, family activities, plus growing my own small business keep me busy — and I LOVE it!
