I have always been fascinated by colors and fabrics. In first grade, I took apart my mother's sewing machine and, I mean completely dismantled the whole machine piece by piece, because I wanted to see how it worked. My dad took me to a yard sale that weekend for my own sewing machine to take apart and put back together. LOL. Years later, I worked in a local fabric store while working on my undergraduate degree. Eventually, the two loves were combined. I purchase fabrics in large lots that are woven into my rugs. My love of design has morphed into creating Shibori dyed scarves from the beginning of the design, to the mixing of the dyes, to hand dyeing each piece.
