About me:
Welcome to my profile. I am married (38 yrs) to my high school sweetheart, am the mother of 4 and a grandmother of 6 ... I have truly earned my 60+ years and every grey hair on my head. In 1982 I joined a local needlework guild when adult company became an important part of my sanity. I didn't know how exciting fabric and thread would make and change my art focus ! I am a founding member of  Connections Fibre Artists ... a group of approx. 30 fibre artists. www.connectionsfibreartists.com. We have been mounting fibre art exhibitions 2-3 times a year at local galleries and museums for the last 10 years. I have been a member, jury team leader and coordinator for Threadworks Travelling Show since 1987... a tri-annual juried show, sponsored by the Ontario Network of Needleworkers, and open to fibre artists across Canada.

Favorite TV Shows:
I watch Bones, 24 and Survivor ! Bones and Booth are the cutest couple that don't quite get it. Jack Bauer is my hero ... never retreat, never apologize and get the job done no matter how much they howl !! Survivor ? ... it's just fun to watch the shenanigans on the way to the top.
Favorite Movies:
Witness, Fifth Element, Armageddon
