  • International Quilt Festival/Chicago is next week!

  • Tricks and Treats

    What's that saying: When the cat's away the mice will play? My husband's been out of town for the past week, and while he was gone, play I did… A few things have been on my mind lately: my beautiful hometown of San Francisco, the Grateful Dead (who have a new CD set out ), and of course Halloween...

  • Collage & Quilt Opportunities Abound (and Meet the Joneses)

  • Thermofax Screen Printing

    A sample of my hand-dyed and screen-printed fabrics. What would you do if you had a month off and could do any one activity? If I could take this kind of time, I'd scamper off to some secret destination (preferably a small creekside cottage in Sedona), and shlep plenty of Procion dyes, Jacquard and...

  • I’ve been tagged, News for ATC Trade at International Quilt Festival/Long Beach, and a Fat Quarter Giveaway!

    Art quilter Mary Stori tagged me earlier this spring and as I just enjoyed a three-day weekend, I had a little time on my hands to finally put to paper a few bits about me.

  • <Blank>1

    Apologies for the two-week absence, but I have been bowled over by a few important deadlines this month and I’ve also managed to catch the flu (no fun).

  • Odds and Ends

    Almost here! 1000 Artist Trading Cards is not available until next month, but I got my advanced copy a short while ago.
