In her own words:

I spent forty-five years working in the financial sector and was known as a leader and a trainer. During that time, I satisfied my need to create by doing Christmas wreaths and baskets for friends and family. I always felt the need to do more. I would perch on the window seat chatting and watching my friend weave. I thought that looked like fun and in December 2013 decided that a loom was to be in my future. I bought a used loom not knowing how to weave or even dress the loom. Pending my retirement at the end of 2014 I read books and watched YouTube and other videos on weaving.  I took a Nuno Felted Scarf course and a course with Zoe Emily and fell in love with felting as well. While continuing to be in an exploratory phase of my life I am enjoying every minute.

I enjoy working with people and sharing my knowledge of the felting and weaving  skills that she has.  I do teach weaving and felting.

I weave with love, attention to detail and weave both luxurious and practical pieces for the  home  and personal items.  Cotton  &/ or linen are woven into the “World’s Best Tea Towels”. Scarves,  shawls and wraps are woven with quality yarns such as linen, cotton, silks, cashmere and tencel &/ or a combination. Hand felted cowls, scarves and shawls are carefully done with soft 100% merino fibres and or silk

Everybody needs a durable and beautiful tea towel. My cotton and / or linen tea towels are extremely popular items  at any shows I am in. I always sell out due to the patterns and colours. They are continually referred to as “The World’s Best Tea Towels”
