I'm a writer, editor, and artist. I edit textile art and craft books for a leading publisher in the field, and I've written professionally for many years, specializing in organic foods and related issues and in the arts. I'm especially interested in all forms of textile art and craft, and the ways that cultures around the world, present and past, use textiles in functional, decorative and metaphysical ways. I originated the Slow Cloth concept and developed its principles, an approach to textile art, craft, and design that focuses on the joy of the process, contemplative possibilities, community, beauty, skill and thoughtful resource use. Thanks for reading!
