Hello, it's nice to meet you! I inherited my love of art and sewing from my mother at a young age. My very first sewing projects as a kid were stuffed toys and doll clothing. From those first sewing projects I've learned all kinds of sewing techniques from garment construction and corsetry to fabric dyeing techniques and quilting. Currently I create and teach from my home in Chicago, Illinois.

I earned a Bachelor of Arts Degree majoring in Studio Arts from the College of Fine Arts at Southern Illinois University at Carbondale in 1992, and went on to earn a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree majoring in Fiber Arts from the College of Fine Arts at Southern Illinois University at Carbondale in 1997. On graduating with my second degree, I was a recipient of the prestigious Rickert-Ziebold Trust Award for excellence in undergraduate art.

I love to connect with others who can relate to my obsessive-compulsive love of sewing, or collecting vintage stuff, to share what we're stitching and creating, and to learn from each other.
