Announcement   I will be at Great Lakes Fiber Show in Wooster Ohio May 28 - 29th! I will have dye plants, naturally dyed fiber, Eco-print Clothing.

Welcome! Thank you for visiting my shop!

All my hand dyed clothing,fabrics, yarns and fibers are naturally dyed.The dyes I use are either gathered or grown by me or produced by small producers. Natural dyes don't act like synthetic dyes! Don't expect them to! They all naturally (O.K. pun!) "go together". Naturally dyed textiles and fiber have an inner beauty that synthetic dyes will never be able to emulate.they are never garish, even at their most vivid. They will mellow, age, patina differently than synthetic dyes. This is living color.

Any textile or fabric dyed prior to 1856 was naturally dyed, using plants, animals and minerals.

Anything naturally dyed should be hand washed cold, using mild soap or shampoo, air dried flat. No Dry Cleaning!

If you need a larger quantity of dyed fiber and yarns. Convo me! I'll see what I can do! "Garden Print "Clothing and fabrics are OOAK and subject to growing seasons in Ohio!

A word about Hand wovens and "Repo" clothing (O.K. maybe a few!)

My hand wovens are also one of a kind. I do Saori style weaving. I'll use a variety of yarns, fiber, cloth, whatever, both natural or synthetic.

I'll also use re purposed clothing and fabric to create various things from coats to scarves to fabric, what ever strikes my fancy at the time. All of these are OOAK. Creatively it's very difficult for me to do custom orders(I have tried! I lock up!)

Colors may vary from monitor to monitor.

I live in a smoke free, cat controlled home.

About

From Painter to Fiber Artist...I never seen it coming.......

For years I was a painter. I never had the slightest interest in anything I considered "domestic".Then I got married, had children and stopped painting when my kids were young. I went stir crazy with no creative outlet! It started with a basket and the desire to learn Natural Dyeing....and snowballed from there!
I never would have thought I would love fiber arts! Becoming a natural dyer, spinner and weaver...and start sewing!
In many ways I'm still a painter at heart. It affects how I think about Natural Dyeing and Fiber Arts...especially my dyeing. Fiber Arts has allowed me to explore and expand my creativity.
I love color and controlling (as much as Mother Nature will permit) the whole creative process. Using what only nature can provide to create my colors...nothing artificial. Natural color on natural fibers. I always was fascinated with how color was made and wanted to make my own paints....but I never did. I'm a bit of a history buff so old world craftsman ship and thinking have always interested me. Nothing wasted, use only what you need and everything to the last.
I do Saori style weaving. I love the spontaneity of the style. I love using different fibers together and watch how they react with each other. I view each weaving almost as an abstract, multi-media painting. Something I was never comfortable with as a Painter.

I developed such a passion for fiber Arts. I decided this Is truly what I love and want to do.

    My passion for color is one of the reasons I became an artist. I've been in the fiber arts about for 10 years. I love being a fiber artist...especially natural dyeing. I hope you like my work...as much as I love doing it!
