Mamie's Schoolhouse was founded by ecological fibre artist Mel Sweetnam, a juried member of the Cape Breton Centre for Craft & Design, the South Haven Guild of Weavers, Spinners & Dyers, and the Canadian Bookbinders & Book Artists Guild.

Mamie was Mel's Mother & her first fibre arts and conservation teacher.
