It All Started When…

As a child I loved embroidery, sewing doll clothes, making clothes for myself and then later taking apart furniture and attempting to reupholster without any real skills, just a desire to redecorate. Through it all, it was textiles that captivated me and to this day inspire and make me want to work with it – their spun fibers, color, textures, and patterns. Yarns and threads of silk, wool, linen … and yes, polyester, acetate and orlon acrylic! My grandmother’s extensive wardrobe spanning the eras of the 1920s thru the 80s, Papa’s vintage serge suits, his felt hats, plaid suit jackets and plain colored overcoats with leather buttons.

Fast-forward from my childhood of early 70s to 2020, some formal training here in the US and the UK, and thousands of hours of learning and perfecting along the way. Many of my best friends and clients – and clients who’ve become friends – are similarly smitten by textiles. We connect on a deep level, not just an agreeable cost of labor and supply. I love this work – let’s see what I can do for you!
