Great news everyone. I'm having my first art show in Winnipeg! I met a really nice shop owner named Chris at the Grace Cafe City Hall and he was totally on board to try something new. You can check out a small selection of my fibre art landscapes for sale starting tomorrow! It's right on King Street between City Hall and the Administration buildings. If you are downtown, be sure to check it out.

I just found these adorable pins on Sunday at the local Ciclovia event on Broadway. Rebecca was a vendor selling these pins made from dominoes. I brought them back to my quilt club and immediately got 18 orders. If you want some too, check out her website at
Her pictures are much better than mine

Hi everyone, I have such a nice little story from my weekend show, but it took me a week to get the photo. This is a picture of my baby niece Ella wearing her adorable new little onesie. The story goes...I was at my show last weekend and a young couple walks in with their tiny little baby boy. They were very sweet and brimming with compliments. They told me that they want to purchase a piece, but they can't decide which one and it also depends how well they do at the flea market. Their little guy was the most calm, adorable smiley baby. He actually smiled on request. The next morning before day 2 of my show I checked out their booth and they have the cutest little outfits for babies. They were selling so well I think I bought the last item small enough for Ella. If you think this outfit is the cutest thing ever, you can send an email to Sara Breslaw at She creates dozens of different adorable designs on onesies, sleepers, pajamas and hats. The happy ending is that they did so well at their table that they came back to Ye Old Barn that afternoon and picked their favorite piece. Thank you guys!

I want to say a heartfelt thank you to all of my friends and family who helped me with everything from framing to babysitting and set up for this show. It was an eye opening experience for me and I learned that I can do anything that I set my heart to. Thanks to those special friends who took the long drive from Winnipeg just for the day.

The weather was fabulous in Clear Lake and the turn out for the show was great. We had a steady stream of visitors both days. One visitor was an exceptional artist and photographer with a very cool idea for home decor. It turns out we have something in common. We have our work framed by the same guy. What a small world! The artist's name is David Matthews and his website is He is a super nice guy so check it out.

Hey everyone!
I'm back in town from my very first show and it was a great success. I learned so much and met some fantastic people. Susan Robertson, a brilliant potter and an owner of Ye Old Barn was so inspiring and had a lot of great info about marketing my pieces and sharing my passion for the process. I also met a few other artists and flea marketers along the way. My new website is now live so visit and check out my gallery.

Let's get this party started!

Hooray! I'm creating my very first blog. Welcome to my website and blog space. I've created this space to connect with friendly quilters who have a passion for fibre art. My favorite things in life are the growing moments with my son, spending time outdoors with my family and enjoying quilt retreats once or twice a year. I could sew every day all day, and I am hoping to share ideas and connect with wonderful people. So grab a cup of tea and drop me a note. I'd love to hear about your latest projects in fibre art.
