Contact Information




I design, make and sell fleece hand and finger puppets. All are animals, real or imagined: alligators, skunks, sharks, dragons, unicorns, elephants, pigs, foxes, donkeys, fish, ducks, -- about 30 different animals. The puppets have button eyes and are machine wash and dry. They are hilarious and ridiculous. I am a retired teacher from Greensboro. I've lived here 30 years. I'm a hospital volunteer, Certified Healing Touch Practicioner, and poet. I've been making puppets for about 20 years, but they've taken off in the past 3 years.
