Hello and welcome! I'm Amanda, a teacher, artist, writer, and innovator who uses words and pictures to light up the world with kindness. When I'm not busy creating, you can find me sipping tea, petting dogs, and exploring the natural wonders of The Bay State with my partner and my rescue pup, Cora.
"RAGGED AND TORN. FADED AND GRAY. THE FABRIC OF AMERICA EMERGED..." 30,000 Stitches tells the true story of the American flag that flew over Ground Zero in the days after 9/11, becoming torn and tattered and later traveled across all 50 states to be fully restored before returning to New York as a symbol of unity and hope.
