Sarah Hunt - Host,

Sarah Hunt currently lives in the Maine North Woods, T3 Indian Purchase where she is surrrounded by plenty of fiber…tree fiber that is!  Luckily, she keeps a healthy stash of yarn and fleece to keep her knitting needles clacking and her wheel spinning.  Her passion for all things fiber began on a providential trip to Orkney, Scotland in January which involved a rather powerful gale, large ferry boat and Orkadian shepherd.  She never turned back after lambing out 700 shetland on a small island in the North Sea.

Now, a Speech Language Pathologist, she continues to pursue her fiber passion with her latest project, Fiber Trek™.  She moved to T3 Indian Purchase in 2009 to marry a Baxter State Park Ranger.  Prior to living in working in the Maine North Woods, Sarah worked for Pineland Farms in New Gloucester, Maine as their Director of Education.  She has a strong passion for supporting local foods, fiber and farms. You can often find her with knitting needles,  ski polesor a canoe paddle in her hands.  She loves to cook, make bread and adventure with her husband and dogs.
