Beginning at an early age with crafts like knitting and cross-stitch, Leslie grew up surrounded by women with an appreciation for crafts and the arts. 

When Leslie discovered rug hooking in 2018, it reignited her creative passions. Her work has been juried into several exhibitions as well as in the Emerging Artist Issue of Fibre Arts Now magazine.

Leslie is co-curating a global rug exhibition called Magnificent Bugs in Rugs to bring awareness to a new generation of rug hookers.


The Mill Fibre Art provides a wide range of textile based workshops not limited to rug hooking, traditional stitching, rug braiding and more.
