Fabric is my FIRST love. Mixing, matching and making are my joys. I have been sewing for over 50 years. My father was in the upholstery supply business. He would bring me home his old sample books and they were my Favorite toys. I loved the colors, the feel and textures. Besides sitting behind one of my 20 some sewing machines, I have such fun sitting with a crochet hook or knitting needles.

I would venture to say that I have one of the largest fabric stashes around. Custom orders are totally welcome. If you have an idea of something you want, please feel free to contact me.

I have collected lots of old jewelry, buttons and beads that can be intergrated into any piece. If you want a custom painted piece of furniture, that is right up my alley also.

For over 25 years I made my living making homes beautiful. Faux paint finishes, wallpapering, window treatments, ceramic tile and carpentry projects kept me quite busy and the creative juices flowing. Having that knowledge behind me I can tackle most anything. I retired from working in the field and now concentrate my time creating in my workshops, yes workshops, one for fabric and one for wood items. Again, want something custom?? I would be happy to take a look.

Thank You for your interest and time.
