About

I love to create with all things fiber. I was 11 when I learned to sew from my Mom, a little older when I learned to knit and crochet from my Grandma Margie. Both were frugal by nature and would have appreciated my efforts to recycle vintage linens. I collect vintage linens and sheets, some of which find new identities as quilts, bags or knitting accessories.
