"The art of teaching is the art of assisting discovery"
— Mark Van Dorena
Hi! I'm Debbie Coyle, I've been active in fiber and other arts for the over 40 years.
I enjoy weaving (inkle and card), knitting, cross-stitch, spinning, kumihimo braiding, lucet
cord making, potpourri, bath salts, and flavored vinegar, crochet, needlepoint, Tunisian
crochet, embroidery, beading, and learning new techniques.
I also enjoy teaching many of those arts, and this website includes handouts and info
notes that I've created for some of my classes. I've created kits for the classes I teach,
and I sell those kits and other fiber arts supplies in my
Unicorn Fiber Arts booth and
website. I also sell fiber arts tools, and brewing kits and supplies Tim's an expert brewer
and has inspired the brewing items.)
I've done most of my art work and teaching in, and because of, the
Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA) a Living
History event that learns more about he Middle Ages through research and re-creation. In the
SCA I'm know as Lynnette de Sandoval del Valle de los Unicornios, and because the SCA
has inspired and enabled my arts endeavors, I've used that name for these pages.
When you've checked out the info here, I've got more info and tips on my
Pinterest pages, so
check those out as well.

Warm Up America! (WUA!) is an organization made up of volunteers who create handmade afghan blankets, clothing and accessories to help those in need. These items provide warmth and comfort to people who have lost their homes, fled abusive relations, or are being cared for in hospices, shelters, hospitals, and nursing home.
WUA! includes countless volunteers across the country. Thousands and thousands of knitted and crocheted afghans and accessories are distributed to various charities each year.
How it works...
Volunteers donate their time to crochet and knit a 7" X 9" rectangle (or more). Sections are either joined by individuals or groups in a community and donated locally or sent to Foundation headquarters for joining and distribution.
The beauty of so many different participants is that a WUA! afghan resembles a patchwork quilt of many colors and textures, just as the participants and recipients represent the varied faces of America.
