Fiber Art Now article

The Fall issue of Fiber Art Now is heading to mailboxes all over the world and soon to bookstores and independent retailers.

Getting Touched

Getting Touched

Hello patient people. A couple of months ago I started journaling in the hazy post-sleep-pre-caffienated minutes of the morning.

I’ve had the keys to the new studio space for a little over a week now and didn’t get my huge work tables moved over until Friday. My original intention was to take supplies over on an “as needed” basis… turns out I apparently need everything. The home studio has noticeably more elbow room, though […]

Shana versus “Vs.”

Shana versus “Vs.”
