In 2015 I retired from free-lance work as a lawyer and writer specializing in employment law topics, but I’ve been sewing all my life, starting with hand embroidery as taught by my grandmother at our home in Hamden, CT. The Hamden public school system taught me machine sewing, and with that skill, I proceeded to construct my own clothes and costumes. As a law student at Georgetown University Law Center, I learned to knit, and later, in my early 30s, as a new mother, I began quilting. My quilt work now includes hand-painted fabric, felting, knitted embellishments, hand embroidery, and beading.
My husband, Joseph Rubin, works for Connecticut Attorney General George Jepsen. We have three daughters: Julia (32), Leah (30) and Lucia (23). Our two standard poodles are Mocha and Duncan.
