Hearts and Hands

I have always been a maker.  Over the years I have explored a number of interests and developed a variety of skills.  So I can’t say that I just make one kind of thing, although working with fabric and textiles has always been in my life.

There are usually a number of projects going at the same time; some for me, some as gifts, and some for clients.  This web journal is a project for myself, to keep me from being isolated.  I also love to share what I do and even teach a little in that process (just in case someone is interested).

In January 2011, I began to develop a website featuring the textile work that I have done over the years.  The quilt repairs, restorations, and re-creations are a big part, but there are also some other pieces shown:  vintage baby clothing, a traditional Peruvian hat, a Tennessee coverlet, and original quilts made in collaboration with clients.  Please visit:  www.NashvilleQuiltRepair.com    Thanks.
