About

I have been making and repairing wood items for only a short 20 some years. I get the greatest thrill from exceeding your expectations! (If you have doubts about that, read some of the reviews I have received. Some of them, exceed my goals!) How do I accomplish this, you ask? ...Glad you asked! I spend most of time in my shop meditating, listening to my MP3 player, (which contains the Bible in audio, and my favorite Gospel music).
My goal is to make you more comfortable while doing the crafts that you love, and therefore helping you feel more relaxed. All these things just blend together naturally, because; I love to do woodworking. I love to sew. I love to knit. uh...well, I really like them, ... and more.
I was taught the chain stitch for crochet when I was still a toddler, then learned to sew when I was just a small thing, in early elementary school. Knitting was only a few years later. Woodworking had it's roots…

I was taught the chain stitch for crochet when I was still a toddler, then learned to sew when I was just a small thing, in early elementary school. Knitting was only a few years later. Woodworking had it's roots then, but I didn't actually get to try it out until I was in my 30's. I started making cabinets, for my brother's contracting company, (hence the name...Sistermaide...longer story, not enough space to tell it all here, but the spelling is for a reason, and made it real easy, when I was purchasing the rights to my domain name!) More recently, I have worked into the spinning wheels, knitting needles, crochet hooks, tatting shuttles, bead spinners, etc, etc, etc. I really like the fact that now several of my passions are blending together, to make my hobbies, blend into one great, field of fun! I have started the flat knitting needles, and the pocket and tapered crochet hooks, because of my joint pains of my age, and a little experience in the crafts, helps me see improvements for them.
I am finding that a lot of other people share in my enjoyment of the new styles. I have had my own website going for well over 10 years, now I enjoy using Etsy as an easier way to promote my crafts. I think it is great! I still have my own site going, but listing here is easier. During my busy show seasons, I plan to have only a few of my items up here, since my favorite way to display my items and inventions are "in person!"
