This is honestly an unbelievable piece of work! I cannot believe how evenly the stitching and pleats are aligned -- this takes real talent and patience. Thank you very much. What a treasure!

Unique Hand Dyed Shibori Fabrics

I have always loved working with fabric and fiber. There was batik, quilting, knitting, rug hooking, printing fabric, and dyeing. A few years ago I arrived at Shibori, the ancient Japanese resist technique in which fabric is manipulated and dyed to create pattern. This process entails many aspects of creating, that I truly love. I get to spend hours hand stitching, surrounded by spools of thread, a vintage pincushion, and a crisp cotton or textured linen. After stitching and the fabrics are pulled tight to resist the dye, I slosh around in buckets of color turning white material into beautiful patterns. Finally, the magic is revealed after all the stitches are removed. That is an exciting moment, since I can't be exactly sure how the finished piece will appear.

Although the stitched pieces are my first love, pole wrapping and folding are fun and offer infinite possibilities. I continually try new designs, while I'm restocking the favorites.

I also like my part-time gig in a pottery studio, gardening, drawing and painting (when there's time), and activities that have to do with food. Traveling is pretty great, too.
