Now I work part time at a local quilt shop, teach, work on commission, and cram as much sewing, spinning, and knitting into my schedule as possible! I love to try new techniques, and play with new fibers. My goal is to create beautiful things with excellence, things that people will enjoy and use for years to come, that will wear well, grow with them, or be passed on to others.
