Commerical and Personal Embroidery: Using the Toyota 9100ESP commercial embroidery machine, I can monogram linens and embroider your business name on clothing, hats, visors and totes, I can combine embroidery and quilting to make a unique gift item.
Hand Made Baskets and Basket Weaving Classes: Using imported rattan reeds in many sizes, I can make a small to toy box size basket. Personalize it with hand dyed reeds and other embellishments. Most of the basket pattern names reflect what they are used for. For example: Potato Basket, Egg Basket, Market Basket, and Step Basket
Stained Glass: The stained glass techniques that are used today are Tiffany style-copper foil method or centuries old leaded glass method. The pieces can be small panels, suncatchers, 3D objects, night lights, stepping stones, windows, transoms and the newest addition, a mosaic mailbox(still in progress). Your ideas or my patterns will make a unique decorator piece that will make your home one of a kind.
Quilting: I have made crib size to California King size quilts. Machine piecing and using quilt block patterns with names like Snails Tail, Log Cabin, Rail Fence and 9 Patch have been incorporated in quilts. Mixing applique, embroidery,and quilted blocks makes an interesting quilt. Coordinating wall hanging, pillows, table runners, napkins and placemats can be a designers' touch in any room. Quilted and embroidered clothing lets your personality shine. Tote bags, purses and computer bags can all be quilted and personalized with embroidery.
My wife owns hundreds of spools of thread. She got tired of keeping the thread in drawers and asked if I could make her something to hold the threads on. I did, and the Thread Spinner was born.
