My creativity started as a family tradition and has evolved into a mission to save the needle arts.

I cannot remember a time when I wasn't creating. My Father ran a tuxedo shop, where I learned to sew at age 8. My crafting heroes are my grandparents, Mike and Andre Stansbury. They have done everything from macrame to giant metal sculptures, and even taxidermy. Every trip to their house left me inspired and with new techniques under my belt. After 57 years of marriage they are still creating beautiful works of art together. While I enjoy many forms of art my true love has always revolved around textiles.

Once I discovered Needle Tatting it became my passion. I could not believe that I had never heard of tatting! Tatting was in the peak of popularity during the 1700's (some references to tatting date back as early as 1387) . Unfortunately tatting became a lost art when machine-made lace became readily available and affordable during the 19th century.

I'm proud to see a small resurgence in the popularity of tatting, and I get to be a part of it!
