About

I am a fiber artist, fashion designer, and collector, with many years of experience in the apparel industry not only in retailing but in manufacturing children's and ladies' apparel. I've been knitting, crocheting, sewing and hand crafting artisan creations since before I was even a "Teeny Bopper".

I offer beautifully hand dyed roving, custom hand drum carded fiber art batts, white and hand dyed wool doll hair and unique hand spun fiber art yarns along with other exotic fibers. For those who would like to learn how to spin on a drop spindle, I offer a variety of drop spindle kits both with a top whorl or a bottom whorl that comes complete with instructions.

I hand make One-of-a-Kind Fiber Art Designs - Limited Editions and no two are alike! Unique wearable art that looks something like you might find on Rodeo Drive in California or in a New York Boutique.

I have sold many items in specialty stores and I create many custom orders for people all over the world. Convo me if you would like to have a custom order made whether it be finished wearable art or other fiber products.

I also hand spin and hand dye beautiful art yarns and create beautiful hand knit, hand woven, hand crocheted scarves, hats, shawls, afghans, handbags, belts, tea cozies, wall hangings, and more, out of luxurious natural fibers and synthetic ribbons and yarns that I individually hand select for color and texture.

Sometimes I embellish my creations with beads, buttons and unique synthetic designer yarns and ribbons. I also create many beautiful hand felted and needle felted designs.

Check back often to see my new additions.

All of my creations are made in a smoke free cat friendly environment and are usually created while sipping a cup of a favorite herbal tea.
Enjoy shopping and please come back often!

I also have a second Etsy shop called: MyVintageEtc.etsy.com

In that shop I sell some of my beautiful vintage collections etc. Check it out too!
