Building the Empire

Feltwork Pattern Line

I am developing a new pattern line
that brings together feltwork and
embroidery.  I have loved to embroider
since I was a little girl.  I find many
people have an interest in small projects.

I started making these ornaments
with my friend Olivia as we sailed along
the Danube from Budapest to Germany,
 visiting all the Christmas markets.

I just sent this one off to Bangkok
to someone I met there last June.

The patterns should be available
within the next month.

For anyone in Central Indiana, I
will be teaching a class very soon.
Stay tuned!
