Nellie"s Needles

About Me

Finally, I've written a separate Page that chronicles the journey from when I first picked up a needle back in the early 1950's to "where I am" now.



















It's titled "Here I Am" and is linked to in my sidebar under the section for "Pages" or here.

Thanks for sharing your story. I wonder if my mother had any of your booklets in her sewing basket.

I love the photo of you in your studio filled with glorious fabrics and colors.

Wow! That is quite a career! How lucky to have a MIL in the fabric industry. Your studio looks like an inspiring place. I'm sure many more works of art will be created there.

Gosh, where to start? the photo of you with the fabric backdrop, well, just plain mind boggling!What an adventure you've had to this point, can't wait to see where it continues to take you. In some ways mine is similar, macrame, off-loom weaving, making clothes and so on. I imagine it's the same for most fabric/quilt artists. Thanks for sharing your story so that I can remember mine. hugs!!!

You were and are such a cutey! Love this photo of you in your jam packed studio of color.

Loved your story. Oh I remember those days of macrame mania. I had a hanging macrame table in my living room for a while. A round piece of glass was put in the middle.

How interesting how life leads us in different directions but yet keeps us using the common denominator of needle, thread and textiles.
