I stem from a long line of makers who taught me many lessons in how to ‘Make Do’ while ever appreciating the plain joy of making and doing. I live for the alchemy and empowerment of making, and the simple pleasure that accompanies crafting things to use and love every day. I believe the most genuine beauty is found in the things that are useful, and I certainly do my best to create beautiful things.
My Portable Yarn Bowls were born from my desire to find exactly that: a really simple receptacle to keep my yarn in on the go. I design all the fabrics myself using my own artwork. The fabrics are printed here in the US and each yarn bowl is cut and sewn by me.
I currently reside in the Finger Lakes region of New York with my spirit animal (Lucille), and my very significant other, James. I’m most inspired by my woodland surroundings, animals, folk art, bygone eras, and everyday objects. …and Lord Of The Rings (did I mention I was a nerd?).
“Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful.”

“It is no bad thing to celebrate a simple life.”
