Design your own ...

With just a few simple stitches,
beautiful thread 
and some crazy real metal, 
you can create your very own 
wearable art pin!
Come join us at
November 11th
for this truly fun design class.

When I started in the needle work industry it was with just
three charted designs for wearable art pins.  
David McCaskill bought my first designs for Club Stitch
in San Francisco and I was on cloud nine!
I had my work on both coasts! 

Wow! Times have certainly changed. 
David is now rightfully retired though
 still an inspiration to many in the industry. 
I've obviously never forgotten the push he gave me!

In this class I'll lead you down a path of adventure.
Come join me and help sprinkle a little pixie dust 
over your canvas.  We'll freely shake out a bit of
magic here there and everywhere!
Call Anne to sign up soon!

life is full of wonder ...

October seventh and eighth found me in my hometown
for the opening of my very first solo show!
Many of my pieces,
from original drawings, to paintings, 
'Rendered in Thread'

I was walking on sunshine, literally!

There is nothing like being recognized by
wonderful family & friends that you spent your
crazy youth with!

I love my hometown of Tunkhannock, Pennsylvania.
It's quaint and quirky, fits me perfectly.
It's full of people and places
I treasure.
There is that magic you live
as a teen and rediscover as an adult.

If you are in the area, the show will be open until 
November 4.
Call ahead to make sure 
Michelle is there.  She is certainly
one of the treasures you should not miss.
I'm so grateful we shared
in art classes together as teens
and have come full circle.
Thank you so much for this wonderful place to feature
