The links provided here are for products and services I personally use in my artwork and to support my art business.

- Thread – Valdani – I use their 50wt 100% cotton hand dyed solids when adding the surface stitching to my textile paintings.
- Batting – Warm and Natural – I wait for a 40% or 50% off sale or coupon when buying a full roll of batting from Joanne fabric online.
