Sewing is my passion. It began at age nine when I made my first apron. From the beginning, I’ve loved transforming fabrics, trims and threads into wearable garments, accessories and furnishings. Sewing, and the study of textiles, became the focus of 3 college degrees and my professional career with University of Maryland Extension. For 31 years, I taught the selection, use, care and construction of clothing and home furnishings to youth and adults in a non-formal education setting throughout Maryland.
For forty plus years, I have shared my love of sewing with the youth and adult volunteers in involved in the Maryland Make It with Wool competition and educational program by serving as director. As creators, it is up to us to perpetuate the future of our art via today's youth.
Today, in my retirement, my focus is primarily with wool fabrics. I push the envelope, doing all those things that I once cautioned against - washing in hot water with agitation and soap, drying in a hot dryer - creating new fabrics with a myriad of textures. Still blending colors, textures, fibers, trims and machine stitches for the unique, one-of-a-kind jacket, vest, hat, mittens… Still teaching about the selection, use and care of textiles… I find great satisfaction creating beautiful things.
