I love all things related to fabrics, textiles, yarn and sewing. By the time I went to college, I made all of my clothing. I flirted with the idea of fashion design before studying English Literature and Child Development.

This Etsy store mostly features my hand knitted and crocheted items and his up cycled woven scarves. Each one is handmade and designed by us in my studio. I have been a yarn collector for the last fifteen years. Thanks for reading this bio and visiting LA In Stitches.
