Sewing has always been in my life, beginning with clothing, quilting and embroidery, then sewing boat covers, cockpit cushions, upholstery, and even a harp cover in my mother’s marine canvas shop. Currently my fiber arts include tatting and sculptural basket weaving. I love teaching fiber arts to inspire the creativity in all of us. Most recently I was the fiber arts teacher at Artisans Asylum, a makerspace in MA. I’ve almost retired as an Exercise Physiologist/ Personal Trainer, love swimming in the lake and hiking, and am a retired rower with a gold medal from the 1984 Olympics.
I now live in Wolfeboro and have been involved with Makers Mill to assist with creating the fiber Arts studio, and am also a volunteer on the Upcycled Fashion Show (see blog on website), a collaboration between Makers Mill and Governor Wentworth Arts Council (GWAC). I’m looking to connect with other people interested in building out the fiber arts studio at Makers Mill. Love any flavor of ice cream.
