About

Art that celebrates the threads of spirit that connect us all.

Weaver, dyer, seamstress - Creator of Ceremonial Cloths, that’s me. I began this journey by earning my Girl Scout embroidery badge and weaving on a looper loom and continued on through a bachelor’s degree and more recently a certificate in fiber arts. Textiles and fiber processes are my passion.

Ceremonial Cloths: I combine my passion for textiles with my love and deep connection with Divine Spirit. This work provides me the opportunity to be of service to both my customers and Spirit by creating pieces that I hope will inspire connections between the two. This is the work of my heart.

Is there is a cloth you want and cannot find? I can help you manifest your vision. By intertwining the skills I have been gifted with your ideas, I strive to create a framework for you to connect with Spirit, as you see it.

Weaving: The interlacement of threads to create cloth is one of humanity’s oldest endeavors. I am honored to be part of this ancient tradition. I have two large floor looms (one 4-harness and one 8-harness), a 4-harness table loom, and several smaller looms as well. On these I weave my tallit, atarah bands and other cloth.

Dyeing: Using fiber-reactive dyes gives me the opportunity to play with color, either by dyeing the warp threads before they are woven (tallit) or dying purchased cloth (challah covers).

Sewing: This is the first skill I learned as a child and have practiced my whole life. Over the years I have sewn everything from garments to tents and every type of fabric from the finest silks to heavy canvas and vinyl. So rest assured, anything I sew will be professionally done.

The jewelry I make for fun, and it gives me an excuse to buy beads.

Payment
METHODS OF PAYMENT: I accept Etsy Direct Checkout, and Paypal

SALES TAX: Washington State residents will have to pay sales tax. The rate of 10.3% (the highest rate in the state) will be added to your bill during the checkout process. Washington state requires the tax to be calculated according to where the goods are delivered, so if you live in a different part of the state, when I get your address I will refund the difference. Beginning Jan. 1, 2018, Etsy will be automatically calculating the correct tax.

NON-PAYMENT: 
Payment is expected immediately after placing the order.
Shipping
I use Etsy shipping which in most cases allows you to choose your shipping. If upgrades aren't available, check listing for specific details. I normally ship your purchase by USPS First Class or Priority Mail within 3 business days after payment is received (custom orders may take longer). Etsy shipping includes tracking. Priority mail is insured up to $100. If you have other needs, please let me know.

International Shipping:
In some countries import duties and customs charges may be incurred. Please note that it is wholly the responsibility of the buyer to pay these.
For more information see: https://www.etsy.com/help/article/5023

I am not responsible to pay for shipping for items returned to me for undeliverable addresses or invalid addresses. It is the responsibility of the purchaser to pay any expenses for reshipment.
Additional policies and FAQs
Your custom requests are welcome. I will contact you by email to determine the details (design, schedule, etc.). Payment is required upon mutual agreement of custom design requests. Work will begin after payment is received. I will send you an email to let you know when the item has been shipped, and when to expect it.



PLEASE NOTE: Because of the time and effort involved, custom orders are not returnable.

FEEDBACK: I love to get feedback, but I understand that many buyers prefer not to leave it. I respect buyers' privacy, and the decision to leave feedback is happily up to you. Additionally, I would love to know how you found me! Let me know in an e-mail or convo, will you?
