Liz Sorenson

Liz Sorenson is the owner of Sheep & Shawl and a fiber artist specializing in knitting, weaving, knitwear design, and teaching. She started knitting in high school. She has taught knitting locally and in eastern Massachusetts over the past 20 years. Her knitwear patterns are available online at

She opened Sheep & Shawl in August 2013 to help support local fiber farmers and fiber artists, supply local yarns and roving to customers, create a welcoming space for the fiber community, and pass on her love of knitting and weaving to others through teaching and networking. She closed the store in 2021 and continues to sell fiber products through her online shop.

Liz received her Weaver’s Letter of Achievement at the Hill Institute, and “follows” the Pioneer Valley Weavers Guild, Weavers of Western Massachusetts, & Western Massachusetts Fibershed. She looks forward to adding weaving back into her fiber career in the near future.
