No one taught me


No one taught me how to do any of this stuff i do.      Except the art, I went to Carnegie- Mellon and somehow found my way into the design dept.    After that ?   I went to the University at Buffalo in fine art, and later took art courses at Buff State, too.   So, I kinda HAD to learn how to draw.My quilts came from the fabric pile I accumulated.   I- - -   well, i have always sewn my own clothing, and now I sew for my son, also.   I am addicted perhaps, to fabrics.   I buy sometimes, just becuz I have found a great deal, too good to pass up !    And these great deals usually are large yardages.    Lin... » Read More

I will be loading up shawls ( I made quite a lot while waiting to move up here- )   and jewelries while making up 2- 3 years of neglected fabric into clothing for my son Jon.    So far, just tonight, I have cutt out 8 shirts.  I cutt them in groups of 4 with a SHARP scizzors.I also will be loading up a whole new set of jewelries.    About 20, with a few pairs of earrings.I take shawl pix on sunny days only to make the most of my skylight windows.   And i am still figuring out how to get the pix I want up here.   I have new LED white lights, they make everything look fanTAStic- - -  everything EXCEPT the pix.   I am tr... » Read More

How I'm choosing to use this space- - -


       I plan to use this area to help you navigate this voluminous shop.   I have always wanted a page inside the sections areas to clarify details of items within that section.   A few days ago, quite belatedly, I realized, that I already have that....    right here.... » Read More
