4.  What kinds of things do you carry?
All things Noni, from patterns, to custom hardware kits, to the best felting yarn around. Come visit, pick out your dream bag, and I’ll put together a made-to-order custom kit. Need an idea for how to make a bag or hat or neck piece truly one-of-a-kind? Stop by the studio to discuss your ideas and we’ll brainstorm something fabulous.
Shoulder Season is a new Noni design
that will be available free on Ravelry.

My studio is a working studio, so if you come to my little shop, you might encounter a photoshoot, or a table covered with newly-made bag kits for an upcoming fiber festival, or a bag laid out with a design idea, or an in-process design draped on a mannequin. You just never know! Come visit.


5.  How long have you been in business, and what inspired you to open your business?
Noni’s 9th anniversary will be on August 19th of this year!

6.  What's your favorite thing about running Noni?
I like the way owning a design company pushes me to be creative, providing challenges to come up with new designs and then solve the problems that new designs almost always present—it is this problem-solving process that often results in new, unexpected, and better designs.

I also love to teach, so the workshops I teach both in shops around the country and in my studio are always a great pleasure: students’ questions and thought processes stimulate my own creative process.
