Introduction My passion for fibre arts and for downshifting and simple living has changed our lives for the better in many ways. Not the deprivation 'you cannot have that meal out' stuff...but stuff that gets you what you want by freeing up money and time. That is how we both got to work part time for the last 15 years and to have to no mortgage twelve years ahead of schedule. We've been doing this simplicity thing for 15 years now and let's just say we think we're pretty good at it and we have helped quite a few people to become better off. Some no longer need to work for a living. Some have changed what they do totally and are able to do what they want with the rest of their lives.
Interests Knitting, spinning and weaving, cycling and walking.
