As my four kids started moving out, I started incorporating their rooms and I now have a great big studio to work in. I have been making quilts for over 30 years, but turned to fiber art about 2001. I have taken a lot of classes over the years, thinking back I used to take classes to make a specific quilt, but now I only take technique classes. I dye my own fabric and am enjoying the process of "mark-making". I'm retired from neonatal nursing so I get to do this full time.
