About

Vermont Floorcloths and Fiber Arts

I have resided in Cabot, Vermont most of my life and love rural Vermont living.  My involvement in fiber arts has grown to include painted floorcloths and wool hooked rugs.  I find much fulfillment in creating functional art: custom floorcloths, hooked rugs, pet mats and interior accents for people looking for the extra personal touch. I offer rug hooking classes at my studio or can travel to your area.

I also co-own  Hillcrest Adirondack Furniture with my husband. We each have a workshop/studio where we enjoy expressing our love of nature through our work.

Whether you choose a painted canvas floorcloth, or a contemporary hooked rug, you will enjoy a small treasure of Vermont which will last for years to come.
