I have a banner in my studio that reads, “Art Saves Lives.” This is certainly true for me. For decades, quilting, sewing, and fabric crafts have been my safe haven. My studio is filled with one-of-a-kind fabrics, scraps of vintage cloth, buttons, beads, shells, and sparkly things. Sometimes these materials inspire me to create Artist Trading Quilts (ATQs), small works of art, or up-cycled denim jackets. Textile Therapy is good for the spirit.
