The Carpetbag Whisperer

I started making carpetbags for myself 10 years ago. As a busy Mom, I loved the way my bag could magically expand to neatly contain whatever mayhem or whimsy filled my days.

So many people stopped me to ask where I got my bag. I started teaching carpet bag classes at local fabric shops and Quilt Guilds. I have met so many fun creative folks who share my passion for beautiful fabrics, sewing, quilting and fiber arts.

I am professional quilter, special exhibit curator, sewing teacher, storyteller, and all around textile geek. I also do textile restoration for museum collections. I search out and collect exquisite fabric.

I began quilting at 14 as a way to express my love of color, design, and creativity. “I love the rich history of functionality and expression in the textile mediums. I like to integrate art and life; life and art.”

In 2000 I was introduced to free needle machine embroidery and found I could “paint” with stitches. Since then I have completed over 700 commissioned quilts. I live in California Wine country. I work out of a studio in my home, which I share, with my husband’s inspiring garden.

I am also on board of directors for the Northern California Quilt Council, regularly teach classes about the use and history of quilts, and donate my work to a variety of people in need: from newborns & Hurricane Sandy victims to military personnel serving overseas.

My award winning quilts and other textile art- hand made purses, clutches and jackets, are often on display and/or sold in select Northern California boutiques. My quilts have been shown in local, national, and international shows.

    Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious! Carpetbags! Mary Poppins knew a good thing when she saw it. Magical bottomless carpetbags and a nursery that manages to tidy itself up are only the beginning.
