Previously, Sandra exhibited handwoven wall-hangings in the BC provincial juried art show. Most recently she had a quilt accepted into the 2015 & 2018 Canadian Quilters’ Association’s National Juried Show.

Currently, her love of textiles has focused on quilting, mix media, art quilts, and weaving.
