What is your website?
What are the best things about art fairs
The positive feed back from the customers and fellow artisians that what I do is awesome!
Best show ever and why
Greenwhich Village, Rockford Art Museum Show. They took such good care of me, and the people were so responsive to my work.
Worst show ever and why
IVC High School craft fair. The customers breezed by my stuff, didnt ask about my work and only wanted SOS. I lost big money on that one besides!

What is one fun fact about yourself?
I have 10 children, four adopted. I train Border Collies and compete in herding trials. (thats how I got into fiber)
