As a member of Yarn Bombing Los Angeles I, along with my husband and our friend Britta participated in their current exhibition California Yarnscape. Our piece along with 40+ other artists’ work is on exhibition at The Autry Museum in Los Angeles. Once a month their our public workshops for people to contribute to the yarn bombing, free with museum admission. The exhibition pieces though are on the rotunda outside the museum, so whether you go inside or not you can view them!

Remember art is an interpretive term. What is art? Music, dance, poetry, cooking, baking, sewing, sculpture, performance, video, photography, oration, mime, embroidery, singing… It really is anything and everything. It also can be collaborative so don’t be shy.
Back on June 21, 2015 Dreameco Crafts was born. It was our first gig.
My husband and I started a company. It made sense that what we were working jobs teaching for others. And as artists who focus is on recycling we had accumulated a large amount of what others would call trash destined for the blue bin or landfill. We came up with a plan to start a company.
Here is an excerpt from our website. An eco friendly company born out of artistic sensibilities and household discards. We are artists and educators who are teaching the public how to use what they have in their homes to create art and household products and extend the life of their items to produce less waste. Classes include crafts, sewing and visual arts. Through classes, workshops and free events we turn strangers into neighbors.
Since June we’ve been working many farmers markets, store openings, taught classes, been in art shows and even conducted an eco scavenger hunt. Feel free to take a look at our website and social media sites to find out more about us. I hope to see you at an class/event. We are also available to book for your next event, just send me a note.
