About Gretchen Huggett
I learned to knit and crochet when I was eight years old and it quickly became something that I loved to do. I moved to Kalamazoo in my twenties and learned to weave at the Kalamazoo Institute of Art. Soon I had my own equipment and I continued to take classes regionally as a member of local and state guilds. In 1999 I became the head of the fiber department at the KIA where I continue to teach weaving.
In 2002, I started experimenting with dyeing techniques to use in my work. To further my weaving and dyeing education I began traveling to Penland School of Craft in North Carolina. I have learned many techniques I use in my work today. In 2007, I opened the Kalamazoo Fiber and Dye Studio and was accepted into Signature.
