Always interested in fine craftsmanship, art, art history. As a hand quilter since 1976, my quilts have taken 1st or 2nd place ribbons at Fall River Country Fair, Custer and Rapid City quilt shows. I’ve taught hand quilting and donated quilts and fabric baskets to various 501-C3 fundraising events in Hot Springs.

Self taught fabric basket maker. Learned pine needle baskets from local and internet teachers. Love bringing fabric and pine needles to life in new and useful form. Focus is on quality, color and form.
