Here is a short bio that she wrote for her blog:
I am a Boston-based fiber artist. I live with my husband- Ben Hyde- in a Victorian era (1892) 2-family house. I have 3 kids who are mostly grown up and doing their own things. I graduated from Carnegie-Mellon University in 1976 with a BFA.

|That black object on her table with the strap is some sort of magnifying goggle contraption. I saw her using them on her Handmade Portraits video on Etsy. Also, I think you really know your craft on a personal level to have so many scissors! I really aspire to be at her level one day. I think lots of soft artists look to her as their model for craftsmanship.|
