|My beautiful cat Starfire ‘models’ one of my sewing creations|
From designing and creating historical costumes for my dolls, I graduated to sewing clothes for people. I enjoy repurposing fabric or old T-shirts into unique creations.
One of the things I most enjoy making are hats.
Hats have been a part of my image for so long, you might even say they’re part of my “brand,” especially when having multiple — and sometimes very different — responsibilities is described as “wearing many hats.”
Since March 2014, one of those responsibilities has been to sew professionally for Hat People in southern Oregon. I assemble crowns and bills for what, when completed, are stylish “newsboy” or touring caps.
In April 2015, I began production sewing for Body Support Systems, Inc., which produces orthopedic positioning products for use during therapeutic treatments like massage.
I’ve made a long and varied exploration in various forms of textile arts: tablet weaving, lace-making, knitting and crochet. The most public expression of my art is through yarn-bombing installations at libraries.
