My favorite textiles are old Chinese brocades, vintage kimono remnants, saree silk and new shibori-dyed silk, some of which are sewn into lavender-filled pillows and eye masks, art dolls and rag baskets. I also like to play with beads. Mostly, I like to make things with my hands. This year I have been weaving new cloth from strips of old silk.
Pardon the bare shelves of my online shop -- that's temporary. However, at a show or a studio appointment, ABC Rags is always fully stocked. See the sidebar for details. Thank you for visiting.
New from my studio
Eat, sleep, breath, weave. This is my new life. Table runners woven from narrow strips of all my favorite textiles were popular during the spring shows. I've made more. Come see these at shows listed in the column to the right.
As always, you'll find a selection of sachet pillows filled with French lavender. I've also got eye masks for a relaxing rest -- these are filled with lavender and flax seed.
