About


During the past 21 years Sandy Creek Weavers have conducted on average 28 week long residencies each year weaving with over 300,000 children and adults, in schools, hospitals, arts councils, cancer centers, libraries, senior centers, church’s, government buildings, military bases and camps creating large tapestries on a 200 year old floor loom which incorporates items of sentimental value woven into the weaving by the community members, students, teachers, staff, faculty, patients, doctors etc. The weaving (s) becomes “A Fabric Time capsule” representing the time in history of the community and/or school, which is left, for permanent display. Our goal is so children and adults could have an opportunity to weave the way their ancestors did, to connect with their history. I have a tremendous gift integrating arts in education through the discovery method. With specialized courses in teaching and weaving, I am a professional fiber artist in my own right.
