Faye has been sewing all her life. She began creating customized apparel for Natives for over 28 years, starting with ribbon shirts that had distinctive woven ribbon work. She made shawls and other dance regalia items as well. In 1999, everthing shifted when she bought a Bernina sewing machine. She began learning to quilt. Her first works were mainly applique. Not knowing what blocks were, she created a king-size rendering of the Haudenosaunee (AKA Iroquois) Creation Story, called Sky Woman's Gift. See the full story on the Masterpieces page. After that, she took quilting classes and mastered the various blocks and techniques, adding her own Native flair to each piece. Today, she has a Statler longarm machine and is continuing to embellish her pieces with authentic flavor to create limited editions and one-of-a-kind pieces. Her daughters have helped her over the years, growing into the business. They all work together and are happy to create beautiful works for the world to enjoy.
