Story
Tagline
I drink a lot of coffee and make a lot of things.
Introduction
I'm a craft writer and teacher in Portland, Oregon and the author of Bead Simple and Button It Up (and the co-author of Super Crafty). My two new books are Modern Log Cabin Quilting and World of Geekcraft.

I also write a blog called West Coast Crafty, and I'm a member of the Portland Modern Quilt Guild and the Oregon State Button Society.

I've contributed to CRAFT:, Stitch, CraftStylish, ReadyMade, BUST, Handmade Nation, and a handful of my favorite craft books. In my spare time, I like to make things for my children Pearl and Everett, garden, drink coffee, and read craft blogs and history books.

I also teach craft classes at PNCA, Pendleton Woolen Mills, and Modern Domestic.
