 I am a fiber artist, soapmaker and nanny. I love working with children, and I love sharing my passion for fiber with them. I work with natural materials, and I have a deep appreciation for these fibers and dyes that come from the earth. My classes are relaxed and flexible, encouraging children to pursue their interests in the world of fiber. Each child will be given guidance and attention according to their needs.
