Journal

Back in the day, women used to gather for a quilting bee. While they stitched, they shared stories, support, advice and encouragement. This journal is my way of doing just that.

I look forward to sharing experiences, inspiration and ideas with you – stories from my archives of collaborations, highlights and fails, perspectives from behind the scenes, work in progress, and projects on the horizon.   

Pull up a chair, and let me know what you'd like to hear about!
