All of the products that I make are hand-woven in my studio in Bucksport, Maine. I weave all of the fabric, then either hem the pieces or make a product from the fabric. After the fabric or pieces are woven, they are machine washed and dried. Therefore, everything can be put in the washer and dryer with no worries!
I love to combine textures, materials and colors to create unique and functional wearable art. It all begins on Shearing Day when my small herd of alpacas happily donate their fiber to be sorted, cleaned, spun, dyed, and knit, woven or felted into warm and useful items ranging from felted soap to scarves and shawls, puppets to ponchos, fringed hats and cozy rugs.
The five collection styles of fiber necklaces casual & outgoing, jazzy & bold, sleek & elegant which makes them year-round favorites. The necklaces are well saturated in color and designed with multiple strands of colorful cotton, coordinated gem-like ribbon and other fibers to create a unique pattern to suit anyone’s style.
I have been sewing since I was 10 years old and quilting for the past 20+ years. Many of my pieces are based on traditional quilt blocks, interpreted in modern fabrics. All fabrics are first-quality 100% cotton. I use Warm & Natural batting and cotton thread. All quilting is by machine. I use a domestic sewing machine so I am not able to create quilts larger than lap size. Bindings are machine stitched to front and hand turned to the back.
