I'm a retired information technology (IT) specialist who worked in automotive manufacturing, production scheduling, materials management, and inventory control. For over 40 years, I have also been pursuing the hobbies of machine knitting and machine embroidery, along with more traditional fiber arts such as spinning, dyeing, weaving, quilting and sewing. I love working with natural fibers like wool, alpaca, angora, and mohair. But I also love the enhanced productivity I can get using modern software and hardware tools to ply my craft.
I prefer to use natural plant-based dyes and sometimes gather my dyestuff from my organic garden or the meadow behind our home.
I am available to teach hand or machine knitting.
I live with the love of my life, my husband. I never knew how to bake a pie until I met him. Now we raise apple trees and honey bees! I love my daughters, four grandchildren and also my step family, kids, grandkids and GREAT-grandkids!
