SPA Spotlight: Stephen Willette

My name is Stephen Willette, Maker of Fine Fiber Art Tools such as; yarn bowls, tapestry loom, shuttles, lucets, sewing needles, crochet hooks, shawl pins and much more. I am truly blessed to get up each day and do the work I am called to do. As a New England based artisan, I have incorporated much of this culture and attitude into my products. Becoming a state-juried member of the League of NH Craftsmen was accomplishment which I am very proud of. 

In my shop, I have a dovetail saw that was handcrafted in Maine. It is one of the finest tools that I own. I reference that tool because of the quality and craftsmanship that went into its creation. I can feel, as well as see, the value of how it was made. I am inspired to work at a level that is worthy of such a fine tool. It is this feeling that I hope to inspire in the people who use my tools for their craft.
