Earth Heart Designs is located
in northeastern Minnesota, near Duluth and the amazing Lake Superior
Earth Heart Designs is a home-based business,
and does not have a retail location. But I travel to fiber shows and I'm available to meet you
appointment, so feel free to call and arrange a visit if you're in
the area (see contact info on the bottom of the page). To be
honest, the design side of the business so far consists only of me, but I notice that I've
lapsed into the royal "we" in some places on this site (for
example -- "our designer" at the top of this page). But I
have added one-of-a-kind shawl pins made by my cousin, Erica, so I'm not
the only person represented in these pages. I hope
you like her pins, too.
EHD's first home was in Pagosa Springs,
Colorado, for about 4 years, but it recently moved to a new home outside of Duluth,
Minnesota. Oh, yes, since EHD currently consists solely of me - that
means that it's me that has moved to rural Duluth (I need to add some pieces back
into my life that Pagosa Springs could not provide - my plan is to
teaching college biology or environmental science courses part-time while
continuing this fiber business). What I've really done is move back
to my childhood home - a house built by my great-grandparents in 1916.
It's on a mostly wooded parcel in the north woods, surrounded on 4
sides by a wildlife management area, with a shallow reservoir lake north
of the property that's a wonderful place to canoe. Summers are
lushly green, while winters are cold and long and white.
It's colder in winter here in
Minnesota and I'll miss a horizon lined with mountains, but Lake Superior,
the north woods, and nearby siblings, nieces & nephews, cousins, aunts &
uncles will provide other treats as I continue designing - and as I design
and teach biology classes at local colleges.
