Helena Heffel, Owner of Grandma’s Plant Closet, enjoys sharing plants and nature with others. She’s a retired teacher who has more than 50 different plant varieties cared for at home. She specializes in succulents and air plants, and you can often find her set up at the Whitewater City Market on Tuesdays during the warm months and Saturdays during the winter.
My work includes wet-felted scarves, wraps, blankets, rugs, and more. My pieces are created to be functional, as well as aesthetically pleasing. All of my materials are local and sustainable, and I know every source of my materials. The majority of the fiber I use come from alpaca and Shetland sheep.
Whispered Howls is a provocative and moving collection of poetry that explores the complicated emotional landscape of women exploring themselves in relationship to themselves and to men. The unique voice of the poems takes you on a journey through the soul of women in pain, in struggle, and in love.
