Natalie Drummond is a former educator and fiber artisan living in Fremont, Indiana. Born and raised in Virginia, she developed a love of science, teaching, and fiber. Her earlier work focused on sewing and needlefelting and she later learned to weave from a Fort Wayne Weavers Guild instructor in 2016. Continuous learning expanded from instructors within the Fort Wayne Weavers Guild as well as noted weaving instructors.
Natalie has pursued weaving with a passion. She is currently serving as President of FWWG and has served as Vice President of Programming. She also maintains a membership with the Fredericksburg Weavers and Spinners Guild. Natalie was awarded a MAFA Fellowship in 2019 and has been studying Deflected Doubleweave intensively. She has also taken additional classes with felters: Janna Mattsson, Judith Dios, and Moy MacKay and enjoys felting 2-D landscapes.
Her work can be found daily at the Orchard Gallery of Fine Arts in Fort Wayne and she was the featured artist in October 2021. Her weaving can be found in Handwoven Magazine Nov/Dec 2021. Her handwovens have also been exhibited in Georgia's Color: Classic to Contemporary exhibit, as well as locally at First Gallery, the History Center, and Crestwoods Gallery.
