All About The Buttons Needle Artwork
Creating is in my blood.
My father was a designer & my mom was a talented needle artist. Since I was a child, I have always been busy with various forms of fiber work including knitting, crochet, needlepoint, embroidery, and weaving. Alongside of those interests was that famous old cookie tin of buttons that I loved to play with. During my fulfilling career in education, I created and sold to colleagues and some local stores.
The ease of online selling became a reality for me in 2005.
I now devote myself full time to combining fibers and buttons but I also love and make tape measures, clocks, magnets, and bookmarks.
There's barely a craft I haven't tried! Please don't ask me to paint...that's another story!
I love special orders so don't hesitate to ask. I am proud of my 100% feedback selling online with over ten thousand items off to new homes in the US and around the world.
In April 2007 a book called Button!Button! was published and several of my creations were included.
It was a very exciting experience. I also had a small feature in Knit Simple magazine's fall 2012 issue and another in Vogue Knitting's crochet issue, spring 2014.
I was also a finalist in Martha Stewart's American Handmade event.
