I create unique, funky clerical stoles using new and recycled materials; these would make great gifts for hipster ministers - they're fun, unique and cost a fraction of the price other, more "serious" stoles sell for. Another way I recycle cloth is into one-of-a-kind denim-and-whatever skirts.

Please drop me a line to say "g'day"! I'd love to hear from you.
