Helene Stracco began weaving at Castle Hill Arts Center in Truro on Cape Cod in the early ’70s.   Prior to that, she learned to spin and dye wool in Brewster from a dynamic young woman who wore fresh water pearls in her hair.  The first fleece she acquired was from Naushon Island off the coast of Falmouth and was purchased after the roundup and shearing of the wild sheep that live on the island.

She achieved the level of Master Weaver in 1992 after completing a four-year weaving program
