About me

Occupation knit/crochet designer and teacher
Location Hemet, CA, United States
Introduction My early years were spent in the redwoods of Northern California. I come from a long tradition of gifted artists and needlewomen, so my love of fibery things comes naturally. Part of my childhood was spent on a farm where my favorite animals were the sheep, of course! I have always sort of made things up as I went along, a born designer I suppose. Over the years, I've enjoyed teaching a range of fiberarts ranging from quilting, spinning, dyeing, knitting and crocheting as well as millinery techniques through Parks and Recreation, junior colleges and upscale yarn shops. This continues to be my greatest joy.
Interests Archeology, anthropology, history, fiber arts including handspinning, knitting and crocheting with a love of great music from the classics to modern jazz.
Favorite Movies To Kill a Mockingbird; Casablanca; Arsenic and Old Lace; Harvey; Auntie Mame (Rosalind Russell version)
Favorite Music Jazz; opera; standards; big band orchestras; rock n' roll; blues
Favorite Books Mists of Avalon; Leaves of Grass; 1000 Years of Irish Poetry
