About Me

Emily McCumber of The Spinner Weaver

I grew up in a quiet setting along the St John River in New Brunswick, Canada. As I grew up, I enjoyed working with my hands and helping out around the house wiring lights and baking.


After completing a Bachelor of Business Administration and working for a number of years in data analysis, I needed a change. In 2012, I decided to jump feet first in to the Fibre Arts program at the New Brunswick College of Craft and Design.

That was eight years ago - and one of the best decisions I've ever made. Weaving is incredibly meditative. It's allowed me to slow down my day-to-day life and enjoy living.
