In 2010 we're going to start unpacking what it means to be Morning Star Fiber. We are so much more than just a processing mill, and over the next year we're going to run a series of posts to help you better understand the burden that we have on our hearts to make an impact not just here locally in Apple Creek and across the nation for rural fiber farmers about around the world as well.
The lady on our banner is a friend we made while on our recent trip to Central Asia. She is an artisan who makes shyrdak rugs out of merino sheep that her husband raises. She works with her daughter and granddaughter to felt these rugs year around. You'll learn more about her and others in the months to come.
On a quest to the ends of the earth in search of raw natural fibers and the artisans who display their beauty.
Morning Star Fiber is where I work. Processing fiber is something I love. Glorifying God by serving others in the fiber industry is my passion.
With a family of 8 kids, a small farm and a growing 10 year old business with hopes of developing mini-mills in Central Asian countries there's never a dull moment in my world.
