Stitch Witch, Weaver of Magic and Wonder, and
Mind/Body Wisdom Practitioner
Pam began her career 30+ years ago as an interior designer with a desire to solve workspace issues and increase peace and productivity for her clients. Looking to balance her work with raising her two, now adult children, Pam left architecture behind in the 90s and began utilizing her creative talents as an artist and arts educator, allowing herself a more flexible schedule and the ability to work with and inspire children and adults. The awareness that art and movement can support wholeness and greater health and well-being has led Pam to obtain her certification in MindBody Therapy. She continues to work toward integrating inner focusing and somatic creativity practices for her students with the same desire to increase peace and ease productivity that motivated her at the start of her career.
When Stitch Witch Pam is in her art studio she “spins straw into gold”, making art yarns often from salvaged and upcycled materials with her many spinning wheels. These art yarns are used to create mixed media artwork, weaving together a wide variety of ancient textile art techniques. Her passion is drawing from the wisdom of the ancestors into contemporary creations with a focus on revisioning the value and visibility of what has been viewed traditionally as “women’s work” and giving new life to what was formerly looked at as junk.

As for the time Pam is not in the classroom or her studio, she can be found tossing balls to her two adopted terriers, Fiona and Stormy, or golfing with her husband of 34 years.
