About me

Occupation Fiber Artist
Location New Hampshire, United States
Introduction Fred Babbs says "go to your room and make stuff". I have always loved making stuff. I'm from a very crafty family - we were always doing some kind of project. I sometimes get really scattered because I love everything artsy & I want to do it all, but I guess my main focus has been fiber art. I have always loved to sew -and that has lead to a passion for quilting,fabric dyeing & painting & all kinds of surface design. Right now I am focusing on my longarm quilting business, which I began in 2002. I sometimes vend at quilt shows; I sell my hand dyed fabrics & quilting books. I bought tons of books with wild abandon, so I have lots of books that are in really, really good condition, many of which are out of print & hard to find collector's items.I'm selling books & some fabrics online & have just started offering all kinds of things on Ebay, Etsy & Amazon. It's fun & also anxiety producing. So here's my shameless plug - BUY MY STUFF (please).
Interests Quilting, fabric dyeing, painting, printing, stamping
Favorite Movies To Kill a Mockingbird and Big - I can watch this over & over.
Favorite Music My absolute favorite band is Counting Crows. Also love the Stones, the Doors, Van Morrison, Wyclef Jean, Mark Knoepfler, Dave Mathews, Pretenders, Steely Dan, George Thorogood (cranked up really loud)& John Mayer's music (but sick of his whiny "poor me" bad boy attitude- boo hoo) ...
Favorite Books One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest, Sometimes a Great Notion, The Artist's Way ...
