Leslie's Profile

About

I am a (mostly) self-taught fiber artist who weaves, knits, and spins and creates mixed media jewelry. I love all kinds of fiber and am fascinated with the differences among everything from nettle to cotton and sheep's wool to camel.

The fiber arts and the techniques with which to create them are some of the most ancient and important skills in human history. I am proud to be able to continue these arts to create beautiful, fun, and functional accessories and housewares.

Some people ask about the name "Coffee Break Designs". When I had a "real" job, while I didn't have a true coffee break, I would spend downtime (and not-so-downtime) thinking about yarn, thinking about color, thinking about fiber, and thinking about projects. Thank you for wondering!
