I believe that traditional hand crafts are a vital part of all our histories. It doesn’t matter where one is from, the language spoken, religion or color of skin, cloth, thread, and yarn are part of our universal history and deserve to be preserved.
My goal is showcase the techniques I love to create small works of art as well as inspire others to express themselves through textiles.
The name Continuous Threads originated when I was working on repairing a quilt my grandmother made at least seventy five years ago. She sewed clothes, quilted, darned, mended, embroidered, crocheted and tatted. My mother carried the sewing into her life thus I had home made clothes most of my young life. I, too, sewed my own clothes but also took up crochet, knitting, tatting, weaving, spinning and embroidery.
There is a family legacy of working with our hands and I want to do what I can to pass these skills on to others as well as shine my own unique light into the world of textile art.
