About

I became a self proclaimed Geek in 1987...8 days after the oldest of my younger sisters was born. Sept 28, 1987...the day Star Trek: The Next Generation premiered. My father was always a Trekkie, but TNG was my first foray into the world of SyFy and Fandoms. It wasn't long after that I started adding to my repertoire of shows and novels!
When I was 19 I became a PBX operator during the swing shift; an elder co worker showed me how to crochet to pass the time between calls. At first it started out with baby afghans, then winter hats, and in 2008 when my first child was born, my Crochet side met my Geek side and ideas started flowing!
I now have 2 beautiful children with my husband of 10 years and continue to expand my Fandom base to include all the new/retroactively new subcultures popping up!

I look forward to making you something truly unique…
