Nita started helping students dye scarves to raise funds for the art program at the alternative school where she taught. Soon she was offering workshops for their parents and assisting for nationally and internationally known fiber artists who were teaching at the Pacific Northwest Art School. Nita who is also a seamstress, quilter and forever art student, has now retired from her alternative school teaching position so that she has more time to play in her fiber art studio, volunteer at PNWA School, garden and spend time with her family.
