As a girl, fashioning “distinctive apparel” for dolls and dogs eventually led to sewing my own clothes. I loved to sew! This interest led me to pursue a degree in home economics education, with a special interest in clothing construction and fashion design.
My husband and I moved to Wimberley, Texas when our children were young, and I began a love affair with nature, beautiful sunsets, organic gardening, and our 15 fluffy alpaca. These amazing creatures were my initial inspiration for opening a yarn shop in downtown Wimberley in 2013 (Ply! Yarn). Four years later I sold the yarn shop to focus more on weaving, and I’m once again pursuing my dream of designing wearable art!
