I have been interested in fibre arts for most of my life.  Knitting began in Brownies and other needle arts followed.  Living in extremely isolated areas for many years encouraged a love of needlepoint and rug hooking as a main source of entertainment along with a love of reading.

Moving to the Sunshine Coast helped develop new interests and friends.  Doreen B. was among the first people I met and she encouraged me to join the Sunshine Coast Spinners and Weavers Guild where I learned first spinning and then more recently weaving.  I also have an interest in felting and recently led a workshop making felted bird houses to sell as a fundraiser for the Fibreshed.  I’ve given felting instruction for classes at local schools as well.  Recently I joined the local Fibreshed, and so the journey continues.
