Some of the earliest evidence of saving grain from the harvest date back to early Egypt, and earlier. Patty began weaving in the 70's while living in a small Eastern Wyoming town where dry land wheat was grown. She belongs to the National Assoc. of Wheat Weavers and in the past has won awards from the Wyoming Art Council, the Albany County Fair and the Ideriod Art Fair in Anchorage, AK. Patty has grown and harvested her own wheat in Texas, however the pieces submitted are done with Black Beard Durum Wheat from N. Dakota.
