About

You want to know about me? Well, I'm just a lupus girl striving to stay positive through my fiber artistry, while protecting our precious planet.

I learned to knit as a young child, and developed an early interest in all of the fiber arts, from spinning yarn to sewing historical garments. While in high school I designed a bustle dress to wear at the historical village where I volunteered. My desire to create unique, vintage-inspired fashion has been influenced by my commitment to the environment. Thus all of my garments are made with organic and natural fibers, low-impact and natural dyes, and earth pigments.

My work has twice been featured in Belle Armoire magazine as well as on several blogs:

I am a proud member of EcoEtsy, Etsy Earth, and the EtsyFAST team.

When I'm not sewing, knitting, or dyeing, I might be gardening or curled up with a good book and a kitty.
