About Me

I grew up on the edge of the Cumberland Plateau, in Science Hill, Ky. After graduating Berea College I was inspired to learn and salvage the dying arts of the Appalachian people. An avid spinner, knitter, quilter, and weaver, I now spends her time spreading this knowledge to keep the heritage of these arts alive.

Favorite Crafts

Silver Wheel Yarn is my fiber arts studio in downtown Somerset, KY specializing in hand woven heirloom quality textiles, delicate hand-spinning, knitting pattern design, traditional quilting, and education in these crafts. Utilizing antique looms, innovative equipment, and a provocative attention to detail, Silver Wheel Yarn elevates the craft of weaving into an art. Local Kentucky fibers, hand-dying, and hand-spinning give the inspiration and ability to produce remarkable items of fashion and practicality.

For Fabric Swaps

International Swappers- I want what you like! I am working on collecting for an international quilt and love to have what people from around the world feel is beautiful.

USA- I'm a very traditional quilter. Earthy tones are certainly a "win" in my book. Totally in love with any of the civil war reproduction style prints and colors.

If you can't see through them, that's even better. Things are made to last around here.

I'm planning a quilt to celebrate my 10th wedding anniversary and are in need of orange and black (especially black, with little white or tan print) fabric. No Halloween themed prints! Just normal fabric with traditional prints that happen to be orange or black.

Whatever you send, please send it wrapped in plastic or in a baggie. I'll do the same for you. It'll keep both of us from being disappointed with the mail system.

For Soap Swap

Anything hand made and local is a huge "thumbs up" for me. Only smell I'm not in to is Patchouli and Gardenia; other then that, I'm easy to please.

Whatever you send, please send it wrapped in plastic or in a baggie. I'll do the same for you. It'll keep both of us from being disappointed with the mail system.

Anything else you want to send

I'm a crafter by trade so any cool buttons, ribbons, beads, and the like you have I'll be excited about. Fabric scraps would make me gitty or even a fat quarter you think is pretty.

I really like learning about local stuff of different places. If you make anything locally I would love try it. Pick me up the book with all the real estate listings. Grab a map and some brochures from the welcome center. Things like that.

Old things and useful things are always a good bet with me. Something you make would be treasured. Recipes are awesome!

You have to send me a local rock! (You don't HAVE to, I just collect them and they are so easy to get.) If it's from a notable place that would be even more awesome. Pebble size is all I need. Something that tells local geography.

What I'm not into. Makeup. Pop-culture things.

Comment: Thank you, nice recipe! Just one question - is there anything I can use as a substitute to walnuts? Anything you would recommend using ;) Happy swapping!
Response: Any source of nuts would go great. Pecans are another favorite that grow locally.
