About UrbanGypZ

SBK01My name is Stacey Budge-Kamison. I started this blog right after moving to Asheville from Birmingham, Alabama. I had just started knitting and found an awesome community of knitters who shared their projects and experiences through blogging. So for the most part this is a knitting blog. It has also chronicled my entire time in Asheville, learning to spin and my projects.

For 20 years, I was an Art Director. I worked for a craft book publisher here in Asheville. I used to knit and spin yarn to keep my creative sanity. Something that I only did for me. I learned to spin yarn to feed my insane knitting habit. Lark sent me to a dyeing workshop, and I found a new obsession with colors and textures. That turned into a side business. Now I am dying and spinning yarn full time. My company is called UrbanGypZ Artisan Yarn. I love being a fiber artist. I would have never thought that this would be my medium. I figured it would be clay!

I work out of my home which I share with my husband, 2 dogs, 2 cats.
