My technical training is in fashion and textile design (received a BA from Brigham Young University 1978). Founded a quilting pattern design and publishing company Hearthsewn in 1984. Converted to paper craft design in 2013 following some additional graphic arts training. I love to design usable, useful paper craft items for decorating and for celebrating the seasons and special occasions. Many of my designs have patchwork or folk art stylings. Often I collaborate with my daughter and son-in-law who are SnapDragon Snippets. It's all good!
