For years I’ve been pondering with the idea of maintaining a blog but the commitment of having to post on a regular basis did not appeal to me. Instead, I have maintained an online presence through my fiber art Facebook and Instagram pages, and my website.

So here I am with my blog! My intention is to be all-inclusive, everyone can read my posts, facebook and non-facebook readers, Instagram and non-Instagram fans, students, followers from afar who cannot travel to take a class and visitors who just want to see what’s happening here.

I will keep the content strictly (with maybe a few exceptions) fiber related, posts may be weekly or monthly but certainly not daily and I encourage you to drop me a note so I know you exist. This is the place where I plan to share techniques, conduct demos, show class and student work, post progress on my own work and announce exhibitions and other events. Of course, you can always follow me on fb and Instagram.

Stay tuned … the next post will be about making Fiber Bowls.

Love your work! Love the color especially, but then the way you free-motion, you create a texture that is of equal appeal! Do you ever have any classes on line? Book? Dvd? I want to learn from you!

Welcome to the blogging life! I hesitated over starting mine until I gave myself permission to stop if I wasn’t having fun with it. Coming up on my 10th blogging anniversary - and still having fun!

Penny Geisbush (Mar 20, 2018)

Hilde, I’m delighted to hear from you and to have the opportunity to continue to do so. I saw a bowl made in one of your classes recently, and it sparked the desire to try and make one. How serendipitous to receive your email and bowl instructions. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed the classes I’ve taken from you and hope for more in future!

Sequana (Mar 20, 2018)

How exciting to find you in my mailbox today! I exist in Chicago, but for a few years I lived in Seattle and a lovely little town called Seaside on the coast up by Astoria. Fond memories from there.

I love working with fiber, particularly with a nice, well-written tutorial as you have begun. I so enjoy pulling fabrics from my stash to begin a new project.

Thanks so much for getting in touch.

Jan Quick (Mar 20, 2018)
