Cloth, yarn and working with raw fibers and the like is what I have always enjoyed. I am simply inspired by and drawn to making fabric and designing textiles. Whether knitting, weaving or felting wool fibers to make cloth, textiles in any form or fashion is my mission and my passion.
My latest endeavor is spinning raw materials to create threads and yarns. I have always wanted to make my own 'art' yarn for embellishment and knitting.
My sewing machine is my favorite tool and I use it daily. In the same way I find that the meditative, and contemplative slow stitch and hand work are vastly important in my art work.
Spinning skeins of yarn, using a spindle and batts of wool, roving, silk, and bits and pieces of things and stuff has been on my "list" of things to do for some time. Spinning is slow, meditative, focused and calming handiwork. I find this ancient and creative method of "making" satisfying and I cannot wait to use my new yarn.
