Craft & Class Info   *   Things I Support

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 Facebook and Pinterest pages, so check those out as well.

Enjoy, I hope you find this useful!

Knit for the CureŽ

Founded in 2004, Knit for the CureŽ directly benefits the Los Angeles County Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the CureŽ. Knit for the CureŽ proudly donates 100% of the proceeds to support local breast cancer services and national breast cancer research programs.

Participation is simple!

As volunteers, we understand how busy and hectic everyday schedules can be. So, we are making it easy for you to participate. We ask crafters to donate a handmade hat, scarf, purse, poncho, blanket, (or really, anything your heart desires) to the cause. Our only requirement is that the item incorporates the color pink in any shade, shape, or form. Once your work of art & heart is done, you can drop it off to any of the donation sites found on our website at, or mail it to the Knit for the CureŽ Headquarters

Warm Up AmericaŽ

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.
