Hi!  I’m Pat Powell and my interests are varied.  Kumihimo is my primary interest.  I also do some metal patinas, felting, beading, paper folding, fabric printing & dying and enameling.

I find that most of these disciplines can be combined into some very interesting art pieces.  I’ve created this journal to help me remember my thoughts, feelings and results of all the processes I go through while executing my crafts.  Hopefully, comments from you and I will help me become a better artist.
