About

I love doing things by hand. I love quality, natural and organic and things that last and don't pollute the earth. Authentic goods of quality, simple and true. Such things are not easy to find in today's mass produced and disposable world but making something by hand, of one's own design, with the best natural materials available goes a long way toward this ambitious goal.

I'd like to share my passion for maintaining excellence, quality, beauty and joy in the process and practice of fiber art. I want to honor the human skills involved, keep them from becoming a dying art and acknowledge the rich heritage, the diversity and multicultural history of handspun textiles.
I try to stay mindful when sourcing my materials, thoughtfully choosing sustainable, natural and renewable resources.

I love the notion of slowing down in order to have quality rather than quantity in life. The idea that fashion should be less dependent on rapidly changing trends and colors (fast money for the rich) and more about quality, sustainability, and thoughtfulness in design and materials. The things we create we should make with care and there should be an expectation that they will have meaning to us. Herein lies great Joy in the creative process.

I have been knitting, spinning, sewing and quilting as well as hand painting yarns and fabrics for these crafts for many many years.

My passion is discovering and playing with exotic natural luxury fibers and rare breed wools, finding creative ways to bring out the best qualities in each fiber. I have a few spinning wheels but usually go straight to my Louet S45 or S90 to sit and spin for a while.
