Myself
From the East End of Long Island, NY, I'm formally trained as an Interior Designer, professionally trained as a Fashion Visual Merchandiser, and family and self-taught in all manner of fiber arts and jewelry making. I have an obsessive passion for creation. As knitting author Debbie Stoller would say, I'm a "process knitter [seamstress, etc.]". I do what I do because I love making things, not for the final outcome or income.

My Work
I do everything myself, short of weaving the fabric and spinning the yarn. I cut the fabric,I sew the seams, and I take the photos.

My Store
Being the typical knitter/quilter/etc., I have a stash. The stash has grown very large. The stash may be more than I can go through in my lifetime. My store is my effort to thin out what I have made. Factoring in materials costs and the time it takes me to create a piece, most items I will not make money on; but as I said, I do this because I enjoy the process. (And I need the space back!)
Also, with a growing interest in sustainability, if I can reclaim or repurpose materials (as in the case of my resistor jewelry), I feel as if I am making a tiny difference for the environment.
