Meet Your Expert

Needlework is my lifelong passion. I love to spin, weave, knit, embroider, sew, crochet, and dye. I enjoy the old traditional ways that my Grandmother taught me as well the contemporary techniques that I learned in art school (BFA from UGA) and in many excellent workshops. I’ve been teaching needlework for over 30 years. I am a long-time member of the Etowah Valley Handspinners Guild in Cartersville and the Peachtree Handspinners Guild in Atlanta.
