I am an artist. I live in Plymouth, MA with my
Peter and the cats.
In addition to creating handspun
yarns/fluid sculpture and making
hats and jewelry, I design websites for creative people and
make visual art, some for publication, some for for my own exploration.
I write and research in the areas of craft, textiles and art.
You may visit my studio at Plymouth, MA by appointment.
I teach art and spinning privately and in groups. You can email me to schedule
Out There Spinning Workshops (Levels 1, 2, + 3),
Coils and Other Curiosities,

Beginning Spinning on Spindles or other workshops.
Back before there were many online venues for such things, I created
another site, crochetlab.
It's a microzine that explores the
experimental/artistic side of crochet and related arts.
Also, check out The Yarn Museum.
For workshops, teaching and writing, email me.

About the handspun yarn I spin:
yarn is an experiment and an exploration. I aim to create yarn that I would want
to work with, and that will inspire you to experiment with whatever YOU make out of it.
has idiosynchrasies that are intentional, altho not necessarily planned. Most
meander in a random way. My hope is that the yarn whispers to you and
it wants to be, and that you whisper something back.
Please do send me pictures of your finished/in progress works!
Note: All yarns are handwashed
before shipping to you.
About the hats:
I try to create hats that I've never seen before. Very often the yarn
with inspires me to go in a particular direction. Most of my hats are
handspun yarn, and the method of creation is experimental or freeform
I want to create hats that look like the first hats that have ever been
on the face of the earth. My hope is that people enjoy wearing these
one of a kind fun/sacred and/or protective objects, and that they enhance
the life of the people who wear them.
The jewelry :
I love making these little sculptures for your body. A really unique mix of colors and
textures that I find in my travels. I can never find the kind of jewelry I like to wear,
so I made them myself! As with the yarns, I am inspired by ancient relics, the raggedy
and imperfect, but whether they are from a past or future civilization, I can't say...
