Several years ago, Kathy's college-aged son took a look at something she was making with some electric colored yarn, and said, "Oh, Mom, if you made me one of those ear-flap hats with the braided things that hang down from that kind of yarn, that would be so cool!" She sent him back to school with several. He and his house-mates all loved them. And so she decided to sell on Etsy.
Kathy has been playing with yarn for as long as she can remember. she finds a tactile excitement in watching it grow into woven and knit pieces. And an uplifting joy in seeing people's pleasure in the special items made for them. Most of her designs are one of a kind, exploring color combinations, patterns, fiber combinations, in knitting and weaving. Everything is made by hand using mostly natural fibers. She sells locally in the Boston MA area, too, and is currently active in the Boston Weaving Guild, Hull Artists, Gallery Nantasket, Westwood Artists, the Dedham Women's Exchange, and the Knitting Guild of America.
