Announcement   Threads of Meaning is a collection of my hand made creations and the materials I use to make them. I am a madly promiscuous Fiber Artist who cannot commit to any one technique or material. I quilt, sew, spin, knit, crochet, weave, make dolls, rugs (hooked and braided) and tat. I have had articles in Art and Antiques (May 2001) and American Quilter (Ultimate Projects 2004). I have sold work to the State of Hawaii and some very dedicated private collectors. I dye my own fibers and use vintage and new materials. I tend to prefer traditional techniques and natural materials used in innovative ways. For more background information go to http://www.threadsofmeaning.com to see what I'm up to lately.

This purse is a work of art. Nicer in hand than even in photos. Soft fabric and user friendly. Have been meaning to downsize my purse and reduce weight, so this will be a welcome change, especially charming for autumn and winter months. The pockets inside and out make it very functional. The wide strap looks short but i'm 5'4" and it sits on my shoulder nicely. Thank you!

Over the past 5 decades I have come to realize that I am a madly promiscuous fiber artist. I make things by hand, I make them with fiber and I cannot commit to any one technique or finished object. I make dolls that are based on real live children. If you want one based on your own real live child I can happily do that. I make quilts that are one of a kind and will do commissions on request. I spin, knit, crochet and weave. I create clothing using any combination of techniques, although I have a particular fondness for the Victorian and Colonial eras. I make rugs, both braided and hooked. I really, really love my work and I work pretty much constantly so the site will be updated frequently and the stock will vary in kind....but not quality.

I want you to be delighted with your purchase. If you are not delighted I will reimburse you for the purchase cost. There is no time limit on this or any extenuating conditions. I really mean it. I will need your object returned to me (I'll pay for return shipping) so that I can see what went wrong and make corrections for future projects.

I am happy to do consignment and custom orders. I won't wholesale because producing mass quantities of one item over and over makes me sad.
