This bag is easy to fall in love with. Though the original black fabric advertised was no longer available, Rachel worked with me to find something close to it. I urge you to check out all of her amazing pieces. Also arrived promptly.

This is a great person to deal with. She made me a custom piece and allowed me to return the piece I originally bought from her. Her stuff is beautiful

About

Passion for Color and Design through Fiber

I've always enjoyed sewing and quilting. I was taught to hand quilt with precision by my mother-in-law. This was something I always did for myself or family or friends but with encouragement from several friends, it turned into something more. I had a couple of open house sales which were very successful and then decided to try selling through juried fine art and craft shows. I also entered my quilts in national quilt contests and began winning awards.
Having grown up in Japan, I am strongly influenced by an Asian sensibility of design and often use kimonos, silks, ikats, and batik fabrics.I do all my piecing, applique and couching on a domestic sewing machine and my quilting on a long arm quilting machine. I do not use any computer driven machines but prefer to use hand guided designs.
I originally come from a music background with degrees in piano performance and I still teach piano. Art quilting has provided hours of wonderful exploration in color and design. I feel fortunate that I can spend time in both the creative worlds of music and art.
I also enjoy making table runners and bags for my customers. These are at a lower price point than my art quilts and can be great gifts for friends and family. Table runners can be changed out with the seasons to dress up a table or side board. My little bags are a great way to accessorize an ensemble and add a little spark of color to your wardrobe. They are well padded, hold their shape and I pride myself on making the best product which will hold up to my customers' high standards.
Happy shopping!

    Sewing and quilting are my passion. The dynamic of movement and a sense of depth through color and design are featured in my work. Hand dyed fabrics, textural couching, and flowing machine quilting are prominent elements in my art quilts.
