Meet Fiber Artist Jeannine Happe

Jeannine Happe is a fiber artist working primarily with wool.  Jeannine designs and hand hooks all her rugs, sometimes using her own adaptation of an antique design.  Designs vary from traditional primitive designs to finer cut designs.  She uses a variety of wools, very often hand dyed, to achieve precisely the right shade she has envisioned for the piece.  Jeannine Happe also hand sculpts little animals from raw sheep or alpaca wools. 

Jeannine Happe is from Blairstown, New Jersey.  She is a member of the Early American Folk Art & Trades Facebook group.
