  • Open House: 17th St ATX

    (psst.. I'm hosting another Open House BBQ on May 19th. I'd love to have you over.)

    My bedroom suddenly turned into a dream after installing shaker pegs, draping a quilt or two, and hanging a fresh garland of bay laurel over the bed.  I had fun displaying my work around the house and sharing an intimate evening in the company of bright spirits who came to support Folk Fibers. It was a great experience display the quilts and pillows, allowing people the chance to have a hands-on experience. I made new friends, some living here in Austin, some all-the-way from Oxford, Mississippi here for QuiltCon. It was a great crowd!!  sign-up for future open houses!

      Thanks everyone! I couldn’t do what I do without the support I receive from my hubby Chap. He believes in me and has become a part of the biz helping as a supportive partner, which he naturally is.
