Dorothy Erard, a ten year resident of St. James, visited the Gallery often. Finally, she decided to add her beloved knitted and sewn items beside all the other beautiful fabric arts items on display. That was about four years ago and she has thoroughly enjoyed being a part of the Artisans group.
Dorothy started knitting when she was in college as a calming influence to her hectic college life. It was later, when her son was born, that she started sewing to provide low cost clothing and baby items. She has been doing both since then, continually developing her skills. She has expanded her inventory to include children’s sweaters, scarves, golf head covers (with your college or favorite team colors) and baby quilts.
