Grateful Threads for Diane Ericson


HI, I'm Gayle Ortiz.  I live in Capitola, California.  I met Diane in 2008 when I attended my first Design Outside The Lines.  It changed my life.  Since then, my creative practice has blossomed. and has brought me so much joy.  Diane has been a mentor and friend to so many women looking for their true creative selves.

Now is the time for us to give back to this incredible woman who has inspired us in so many ways for so many years.

Diane has lost her home and everything  she owns in the devastating Ashland fire.  Our support will help her realize that a new life is possible.  She has expressed the desire to stay in Ashland and find a work/live property so that she can continue teaching and inspiring women.  These funds will make that a reality.

Also, Diane's online store is open so that is another great way to support her now.

Please give generously.
