Marie-Nicole Roberts sells her uniquely hand-crafted range of wool, feather and leather goods at a range of regional markets.

Quietly putting Yass on the global 'handcraft' map, artist Marie-Nicole Roberts works away in her serene rural surroundings on a sheep farm just outside of Yass, transforming rescued old woollen blankets and leather offcuts into unique, one-of-a-kind, items. This year she has once again received recognition for her work, named as a finalist in the Etsy Design Awards in the category of 'Business as Unusual', which focuses on social and environmental responsibility.
