Hi, thanks for taking the time to learn a little about me....there's a ton to tell like most everyone, but I'll try to keep it short. :)

I can remember a special day in the third grade perfectly...and though I had been crocheting a granny square afghan with my own money from yarn at the nearby drugstore for a year, and sewing by hand, I had never seen anything like this special "show and tell" day.

A kind and amazing woman was in our classroom when we returned from recess, and she had brought these fascinating things into our lives called a spinning wheel, wool, carders, and a FLOOR LOOM if you can believe that!!! She even let each of us try all of her wonderful tools out.

I wish I could hug her today, and give her a little peck on the cheek since I have her to thank for the spark that…

I wish I could hug her today, and give her a little peck on the cheek since I have her to thank for the spark that became the flame of my burning fiber love. That spark stayed hidden though alive for 16 years until one day....

As a newlywed in 1994, my husband and I moved to a new little town (very quaint) where I saw a spinning wheel hanging in the window of the sweetest fiber shop ever, and basically dragged him there. All my memories flooded my mind, and before too long, I had my first wheel, and a loom (that I refurbished), and my very own hand carders! Then I had to get some angora bunnies of course! Wow! I felt like I was living the dream!! I had spun and knit five or more sweaters in the first few months!!! I was really hooked.

And though I sew, embroider, quilt, paint, build, upholster, finish furniture, make clocks, soap, candles, jams, gardens, and a ton of other things, at the tippy top of my crafty love list, is my precious fibery treats: spinning, weaving, knitting, crocheting, and dying of course. :)

That first year I sold my handmade crafts including some handspuns at a home show, and the following year also. I had some time on my hands, I bet you realized, since I only had one little one, and though we homeschooled and were involved in the community, I still found time to craft! :)

More later......
