Janet Scruggs

“I am drawn to textiles of all varieties by an overwhelming need to explore and create. “What would happen if” is a question I constantly find moves me into yet another adventure of techniques and materials. This curiosity has led me down many a rabbit hole in my textile travels. Sometimes I discover something new and fabulous and other times are simply classified as a “learning experience” – Janet
