I suppose it was the macrame days of the sixties that began my journey into fiber arts. (Remember those days, you old hippies?) I now find myself to be a full-fledged yarn addict. Yarn spills from every closet, shelf, drawer. You name it, I've stashed yarn there. Although my very patient family has tried to keep yarn from spilling over into our living areas, they have become accustomed to furniture being moved so I can get the best picture of a new baby blanket.

I suppose it was the macrame days of the sixties that began my journey into fiber arts. (Remember those days, you old hippies?) I now find myself to be a full-fledged yarn addict.

Anyway, I love my job. From the moment I spot the perfect yarn for the pattern I've been wanting to try out to the moment my customer says, "I want that one!", this is just a great job. It continually amazes me that I can actually make money doing something that is so fulfilling to me personally.
I only wish I could give you a sense of touch over the internet. Yarn just begs to be touched. Whether it's an adult scarf or a baby blanket, I love working at a craft show and watching my customers reach out to touch the things I have made, as if they just can't resist. I certainly know that feeling! I do the same thing in a yarn shop.
So welcome to Bruce Creek Crafts! I hope you enjoy strolling through my shop and find the perfect item!
