I have been working with fiber since the 1970’s: weaving, dyeing, spinning, knitting, felting, stitching, block printing, and making shibori. I have traveled all over the world in the pursuit of textiles to study, collect and most importantly, to meet other artisans. My explorations have taken me to Japan, Indonesia, Guatemala, Peru, India, Nepal, Mexico, Europe and China. I am also a teacher and lecturer. It is as important to me to share what I have learned with others, to initiate young and experienced makers to the deep satisfaction that comes from creating something with their own hands, as it is to do my own work. I am currently involved in a nonprofit organization dedicated to sustainability, creativity, and preserving traditional crafts, folklife skills, and agricultural knowledge named Sanborn Mills Farm (New Hampshire).
