Creating is in my blood. My Father was a designer & my Mom was a talented needle artist. Since I was a child,I have always been busy with various forms of fiber work including knitting, crochet, needlepoint, embroidery and weaving. Alongside of those interests was that famous old cookie tin of buttons that I loved to play with. During my fulfilling career in education I created and sold to colleagues and some local stores.The ease of online selling became a reality for me in 2005. I now devote myself fulltime to combining fibers and buttons but I also love and make tape measures, clocks, magnets and bookmarks.There's barely a craft I haven't tried! Please don't ask me to paint...that's another story!
I love special orders so don't hesitate to ask. I am proud of my 100% feedback selling online with over one thousand items off to new homes in the US and around the world.
In April 2007 a book called Button!Button! was published and several of my creations were included (pictures below). It was a very exciting experience. I also had a small feature in Knit Simple magazine's fall 2012 issue and another in Vogue Knitting's crochet issue, spring 2014. I am also a finalist in Martha Stewart's American Handmade event.
