A ton of online classes!

I grew up and continue to live in Ecuador, a country rich in handicrafts, from weaving to wood carvings to ceramics, and just about anything and everything you could imagine in between.

    I am a self-learner. I taught myself to sew and to quilt. And I taught myself how to draw. I am learning how to dye my own fabrics and am dabbling with mixed media. I am a quilt designer and teacher, and design and publish my own line of quilt patterns. With this blog I would like to share the bits and pieces of my life.
