The making of Swift Stitches...
Swift Stitches started in a small cabin north of Fairbanks, Alaska in 1995. A fellow artist needed some help doing some shows and suggested I could make a little extra cash if I created some of my own art for the shows. Little did I know, 20 years later, I would still be creating art.
For the last 8 years my studio location was a 15' x 15' dry (that's Alaska speak for no water) log cabin in Talkeetna, Alaska. I am grateful for the time I spent in this cabin, because it came with the a "bonus" friend, who also served as my landlady. She taught me more then anyone else who has been in my life. She gone now, and deeply missed.
For ethical reasons, I will not continue to rent this location. I have packed the studio, and gave away 30 years of collecting and will be driving south soonish. Just where I will land, I'm not sure. Please check back, I plan to open somewhere for the summer season.
Please forgive the quality of the pictures in the slide show; clearly I'm not a photographer.
Hope you enjoy the site,
