On the next edition of Fiber Hooligan (12/16/13) my guest will be the incredibly talented artist and dyer, Babs Ausherman… otherwise known as Miss Babs. Miss Babs is, of course, the owner of Miss Babs Hand- Dyed Yarns & Fibers in Mountain City, Tennessee.

'Miss Babs' was started by Babs in 2003. In 2005 'Miss Babs' morphed into 'Miss Babs Hand-Dyed Yarns & Fibers' as she developed the business and found that placing color on yarn and fiber had become her core focus. This was also the year that she moved from being a full-time adjunct instructor in marketing at a local university to fiber as a full-time passion and occupation.

We're going to talk about her long and varied work experience… as a chef's apprentice, a real estate agent, an insurance agent, an office manager in a mental health facility, director of staff development in a hospital, teaching business courses at a community college, teaching marketing at a university, and finally becoming a dyer of some of the most beautiful yarn and fiber that can be found. We're also going to be talking about her philosophy as a business owner and as an artist.

Babs is a fascinating lady. And I hope you'll tune in next Monday for what should be an exceptional show.
