From simple sewing roots to fine art and up-cycled innovation

I am a textile artist with home sewing roots. From sewing with my Grandma Ruby, a trained tailor, to learning to nuno felt in Japan, I grew from my life experiences at home and abroad.

My art-making developed through post-secondary study of art history and classical liberal art studies at Bishop's in Quebec, and later in my focused study of textiles at Capilano University in North Vancouver, BC.

Using what I see around my studio and home on Salt Spring Island, I am propelled by creativity and innovation. I bring my fine woven scarves and shawls and earth-friendly up-cycled t-shirt bags to your doorstep via Etsy, with delight.

    I love to make textiles using all kinds of handwork techniques. My main inspirations are my Grandma Ruby and my time spent living in Japan, where my brush with the textile traditions of Kyoto were etched into my memory.

Welcome, and thank you for visiting. The items you see are each made with Love in a small studio by the Pacific Ocean on Salt Spring Island, BC. While I weave and sew, I imagine a better life for textile workers all around the world and am creating a workshop series to teach kids about the scope of textile waste and the power of d.i.y. and up-cycling.
Returns and exchanges
Your satisfaction is very important to me, so if you have any problems at all, please be sure to contact me immediately; I want you to be happy with your purchase!

Since my experience with returns is very limited, I will consider each on a case by case basis. I would prefer to offer credit towards another item in my shop whenever possible. However, I also do not want my creations in a home where they are unwelcome, so hopefully, we can work together to resolve any issues.

Any return must be requested within 7 days (domestic) or 14 days (international) of customer receiving the item. If a return and subsequent refund is approved, it will be for the purchase price of the item(s) only, minus shipping charged, with the understanding that buyer is also responsible for return shipping costs.

If a return has been approved, item(s) must be returned promptly, shipped with tracking and email notification after having received approval, or no refund will be given. Instead, a code for credit will be issued toward future purchases in my shop. Returned items must also be received back in the same condition as they were sent, unless damage has been proven to have occurred in transit, of course.
I accept payments through PayPal.

Payment is to be made at the time of purchase. If your payment isn't received within 3 DAYS of placing your order, I will cancel your order.
Your order will ship within 48 hours from the date of your purchase/payment. PLEASE feel free to contact me with any questions, etc., about your order.

I love to package things well. When convenient, packaging materials are reused and recycled.
