Welcome to my world of fantasy created with needle and thread. I'm an award-winning textile artist and instructor and author specializing in crazy quilts and all the hand work that goes into creating them. I am an herbalist and a contributor for Mother Earth News Herbal Living and I make products for Beekman 1802.
Offering a selection of classes on crazy quilting, beading, embroidery, silk ribbon and more. Lots of laughter in a relaxed setting while you learn more than you thought possible!
Some of my patterns are available on Craftsy Faux Pearls, Victorian Crazy Quilt Blocks, An Elder Gathering. and more.
There are more videos of me showing how to strip embroidery floss without knots, how to make sage and ginger tea for a sore throat, etc.
And here is a compilation video:
