Used clothing alchemist since 1987

Materials Shop Added


2012 bursts out of the gates with a full eight days of studio workshops on the schedule for the year.  Other workshops are planned, mostly in Irvington, NY at Eileen Fisher headquarters.

Response to these classes has been overwhelmingly positive.  I get notes from participants exclaiming how touched they have been by the experience. Others keep coming back and can’t seem to get enough of the process.  This is all wonderful for me, to know I am empowering people to make.  .  .   and be creative is what brings me deep contentment.  Thank you to each of you who has been so moved to flourish in my process, making it your own in the mix.

In response, I have opened a second Etsy shop featuring tools, tutorials and materials introduced at my workshops.  Now you can buy tools and materials that might be hard to find outside of my classes to continue down the creative path of used clothing recycling. You will find yarn, needles, finishing tools, patterns, books, and all manner of inspiration to get started or continue on in your creative recycling textile endeavors.  This is a brand-new endeavor that will be fleshed out in the coming weeks so check it out and check back to see how it grows!

Facebook is a great way to connect with other workshop participants or just catch up in conversation about students’ experience learning my process.

If you would like me to send you a nice printed 2012 workshop schedule in the snail mail, email me your address.

Also note I am available for off-site, corporate, and private group sessions just drop me a line to learn more.
