Frances Tornese

New Jersey

I come from a long line of women who made things with their hands. Many did beadwork, quilting and basket weaving. I learned to knit, crochet, embroider and do beadwork as a little girl. I have added spinning, weaving and bobbin lace to the list. I need to make things every day or I am not as happy as I should be. I love creating and I love creative people Frances Hill-Tornese AKA Hinhanskawin White Owl Woman
