Announcement   Welcome to my handspun/handknit fiber crafts and one-of-a-kind garments and accessories, made using a bevy of beautiful fiber materials, adornments and embellishments, employing hand-spinning, hand-knitting, crocheting, needle-felting, embroidering & beading! I sometimes also have handspun art yarns for you to use in your own fiber projects! My deepest pleasure is to spread the history, enchantment & magic of my crafts, and especially to remind you of the beauty in nature! A bit of an enchanted soul, meself, I love to infuse bewitching inspiration into all my creations!

I hope you find a treasure or two here to enjoy in your own realm that re-connects you to the unique beauty of handmade ways, and an appreciation for Old World crafts! Or, to gift to a loved one; ....nothing says "love" like wrapping someone in an heirloom-quality garment they can use & cherish the rest of their life!

*Note: Some of the items I offer cost more (for the same type item) due to the added labor of me hand-spinning the natural wool fiber into yarn myself, compared to items made with already-made shoppe-bought yarn.

Thanks for your visit, and please *favorite* us & come again to see what new creations we've come up with!

About

A throwback to ancient crafts & arts , keeping them alive....with my own twist...and magic!

As far back as I can remember, I was surrounded by women (& men) who crafted. So it seemed natural to me to always be stitching, sewing, knitting, crocheting, embroidering, etc., always inspired by my favorite places to be...forest, sea, mountains, garden. It wasn't until later that I picked-up hand spinning.....and haven't stopped since! I love making one-of-a-kind items that employ artistic license and a variety of fibers and earthly adornments!

I have a non-smoking home, have several pets (golden retrievers & black kitties), but none have access to my crafting materials. process, or fiber studio.

I am also a soapmaker and fantasy artist! You're invited to visit my websites at:

Thanks for stopping by!
