Growing up I found at an early age my ap- petite for learning had no boundaries. I am an avid reader of all types of literature. I learned to crochet and knit when I was six years old, taught by my great-aunt. My mother taught me how to sew and embroi- der when I was nine. Through the years I have always found comfort in fabric arts. The pieces I have created are both beautiful and functional. Several years ago I saw a rag rug on Facebook and was immediately drawn to learn more about the craft of twin- ing. Since then my husband has built several of my looms and I have refined my knowlege of twining.

My husband, Dennie, and I live out in the country, where we raise chickens for the eggs. We have six dogs. We raise a garden each year, preserving as much as we can for the winter months.

We have been married for 19 years. I brought to the marriage three children, five step- children, 18 grand- children, and now 2 great-grandchildren. Our lives are fully blessed with our family.

Appalachian Arts Craft Center has given me the opportunity to bring my craft to the public eye. Being a juried artist completes one more piece of my
rich and full life.
