I’m Cathy Jackson, a lifelong maker, re-user, recycler, teacher and artist, I am primarily self taught although have taken drawing, painting courses and have a residential interiors diploma. I have a strong love and background in fiber, including quilting, knitting, crochet, embroidery, clothing, and weaving. I describe myself as compulsively resourceful and thrifty with materials, using materials as new as left over party decor to as old as 100 year old fabric, I enjoy using materials in non traditional ways and truly dislike to throw.
Teaching and sharing skills has been something I've done since my teens as a craft director for summer camps. My mother and grandmothers enabled me and taught me the joy and sense of accomplishment that comes from making. I bring a lifetime of skills to Makers and Mentors and My greatest enjoyment comes from teaching others
Thank you for exploring, creating and re using along with me.
