I would like to welcome to you to Shady Grove Studios. My work revolves around my two loves, fiber art and stained glass. My home and studio are located in a shady grove in rural Southwestern Wisconsin. It is a truly magical place to live. The beauty of nature is my inspiration and the springboard for my creativity.

I have been sewing and working in the needle arts for as long as I can remember. My husband and I took up stained glass in the early 90’s. When we moved to our current location I was unable to set up my stained glass studio right away. I took up quilting and sewing to fill the void.

I have been sewing and working in the needle arts for as long as I can remember. My husband and I took up stained glass in the early 90’s. When we moved to our current location I was unable to set up my stained glass studio right away. I took up quilting and sewing to fill the void. It didn’t take long to fall in love with the different fabrics. Often I had a hard time finding the fabric colors I wanted to work with so I learned to hand dye fabric. I fell in love with the results.

I have combined these skills to make my quilt block jewelry. I started making quilt block jewelry in the summer of 2007. A friend of mine that owns a quilt retreat inspired the idea. She hired me to make charms containing photographs of sisters that attend her retreat annually. The idea evolved from there.

Most of the fabric used to create the jewelry are hand dyed. Many of the fabrics are my own. Turn the jewelry over and you can see the foundation piecing on the back.
