I create enchanted art quilts from inspirations I receive from the woodlands which surround me and the meditative journeys that arise from within. People report feeling profound healing energies radiating from my work. I also do commissions based on your personal visions so that you can be guided every day to fulfill your dreams just by gazing at the quilt. Classes are also posted on FB.
Martina makes dimensional weavings in fiber and natural materials . . . images of beautiful places and natural things. They evoke warm happy memories of places she’s been, people she’s met, and experiences that she cherishes.
I am a maker of cloth dolls. I have a large variety of styles and sizes. I make people, rabbits, and cats, male and female. (Gender is determined by clothing.) I use quality cotton fabric. I add details such as hand embroidered faces, wool yarn hair, cotton, and vintage lace and buttons. My dolls are made for children to play with, to love and cherish. They are washable!
I also make hand crocheted hats with beautiful designs and colors using Lamb's wool, mohair, and alpaca wools.... cotton for baby hats. I make a variety of clothes ornaments, quilted items, and original paper cut cards. email
Melanie has been knitting for 35 years. She specializes in intarsia, designing with color, and the unconventional usage of fibers. She incorporates extremely soft, high-quality fibers and hand- and kettle-dyed yarns into her knitted and woven pieces to enrich them with visual and textural interest. Her textiles are inspired by the natural landscapes of Southern Indiana, the impressionists, and the rich traditions expressed in the woven and knitted ethnic textiles of the world. In fulfillment of a lifelong dream, she lives in a tiny studio in the backcountry of Brown County where she dedicates her work to honoring our joyful connections with the natural world. She holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from Indiana University. Her work may be viewed at Hoosier Artist Gallery in Nashville, Indiana. She accepts private commissions. email

I'm a textile and multi-media artist. My focus is on stitchery, patch and scrap work, doll making, and embellishing tattered antique cloth dolls. I work rather quietly in the loft of our home in the forest. My online shop, opening in time, will be named Shmata Boro, shmata being the Yiddish word for rags or scraps of cloth, and boro being the Japanese term for the same.
