In case you cannot make it to either the Weavers Guild Fall Sale or the Studio Collection Holiday Sale (both of which are held in November each year), I am offering sales options online for my salvaged and re-energized fiber art: basketry, sewn mats, natural dyed and hand-embellished silk scarves, notecards, and handmade paper wall pieces. (See below for details on all.) My soft-sculpture Women Warriors, SnipPets© and Strange Angels need to be felt and held and squeezed and fondled, and all my refreshed and renewed clothing items need to be tried on… I may get them up on this site at some point…
For all sales I accept:
- most major credit cards via Square (email or call and leave a message with your phone number and the item/s you want – I will respond as quickly as possible and take care of your charge over the phone)
- personal checks (just let me know what item/s you are wanting and I will put a hold on it/them until the check arrives).
- If you live near Harrison, OH, and would like to do a physical exchange of art/$$, just let me know!
As I enjoy meeting the folks who adopt my work, please consider leaving me a message and saying a bit about yourself when you purchase an item!
My intention is to post images of representative pieces of my work and let you know the options (e.g. sizes, colorways). Since most of what I make is unique – and you need to SEE it – as much as possible will be posted. If there is something you are interested in and you don’t currently see it, please contact me for availability and the potential of having a private video showing of what is still to be posted.
- tax included in item price
- shipping/handling extra (minimum $5 – outside US please inquire first before ordering)
- all $$ posted are USD
The work below is available now – more is available and will be posted as soon as possible.
