Gwen E. Brown's Profile

About

I come from an artsy family. The closest anyone got to sports was being in the marching band. But if you were interested in painting, bellydancing, clay modeling, cross-stitch, embroidery, sewing, or any other art/craft project, you could always find support (and probably supplies somewhere in the house).

At 19 I spontaneously decided to learn how to knit. My mom helped me by getting a kid's book from the library. Together we worked through the instructions until I felt relatively confident to proceed. Some months later I took a spinning class. And so on.

Seven years have gone by. I got married, bought a house, got a cat, quit my day job, and filled a whole room with fiber and equipment. Some days I feel so excited I could burst, other days it's hard to find inspiration. But my family is greatly supportive and I know that I have a good foundation!
