woman embroidery hoopI have a variety of interests that mostly have to do with the manipulating of textiles into some form or another. Some things can only be hand stitched and I like the slow, rhythmic action of the needle taking the thread to task. Other times, the sewing machine is the only thing that will do!

Some of the things I like to make are dolls, potholders, blankets, quilts, ornaments and tote bags. Consequently, I’ve amassed a collection of vintage patterns that I share here freely as time permits them to be scanned and uploaded.
