Back in 1965 knitting and crocheting were all the rage! Both of my parents were artistic in different ways and my mother encouraged my interest in yarn, fabric and fiber. My pastor's wife graciously agreed to teach me to knit. Over the next 50 years there was always a knitting project in the works. Felting (or fulling) came into the mix about 10 years ago. I love the versatility of wool! The way it creates a whole different look and texture when washed, and the way the colors blend. After I found Sarafina Fiber Art and started needle felting, well that just added more fuel to the fire. The embellishment possibilities are endless! I create my own patterns, no two bags are alike.I enjoy making practical, timeless bags using the very best materials, that can transition from day to night and be handed down from mother to daughter to grand daughter. Each one is special, just like the person who carries it! Thanks for visiting.
