I love fabric arts of all kinds. Although I have little skill in any craft I still enjoy knitting, weaving, quilting and especially making new, useful items from old ones. I hope to create a collection of beginner projects that have both aesthetic appeal and enough jazz to satisfy every budding artist. I welcome suggestions.
