Through Maggie’s Corner Dot Org I up-cycle materials to promote awareness for recycling. It is my dream to build a community center where I and other volunteers will share knowledge and resources to keep our handcrafting traditions alive, and to advocate for a more sustainable lifestyle.
I volunteer at several local organizations where I serve on committees, participate in projects, and teach. I have many hobbies but, weaving has become my obsession. I don’t know which I am more obsessed with, building the looms or weaving on them. I love giving a new life to items that have outlived their usefulness as their original purpose, such as the broom and mop handles that are now part of my backstrap and inkle looms. Also such as the old clothing that is now woven into rugs, totes, and other useful items. I also upcycle feedbags, coffee bags, and grain bags into useful items such as totes, pouches, and hampers.
