The name Joy Did It comes from my dad. It was his suggestion as a name for my freelance graphic design business. No longer freelancing, the name stuck.
I am fiber geek of the first degree. Spinning, weaving, fiber preparation, textile history and archaeology, dyeing, color history are some of my fascinations. I love working with fine fibers and threads and love to spin silk at 100 wraps per inch. Yes, I am Twisted and Warped.
Professionally, I am a web developer/code monkey working with Microsoft Dynamics CRM and web sites by day. I own my own fiber arts business-Joy Did It Fiber Art & Design which features my shibori and handwovens. I am transitioning to the textile research and replication field as an independent scholar. I have spun, woven and dyed for over 20 years and many of my projects have been based on archaeological sources.
