Ten million Americans experience domestic abuse every year. Ten million. Someone I love and care about is a victim of abuse and has been for nearly twenty years. Odds are you or someone you know is a victim as well. I have learned a lot about domestic abuse over the last two decades and the number one fact I have learned is that most incidents are never reported. Ten million people every year and that number doesn't reflect the full scope of abuse in the US, as many people aren't able to safely share and report their stories. I am a doer. I like to make and fix things. Sadly, I cannot fix things for the person in my life who is being abused. But, I can speak up. And I can sew. And hopefully I can make a difference.

I am currently working on a series of quilts dealing with Domestic Abuse.
