About

My Story

I started down the crafty road at the tender age of six -- both of my grandmother's tried to teach me a craft -- Grandma G tried crochet and Grams tried needlepoint. WELL needlepoint won out and I did needlepoint for several years. I learned to sew at 7 on my mom's Singer Athena -- made my Campfire Vest for my first bead in Adventure! I took semi private sewing lessons during the summers between 6th grade and 9th grade and of course, home ec in jr high and sewing in sr high. I was told at the midpoint of my sophomore year by my sewing teacher that I needed to pick another elective, because I was already doing what the seniors were doing for graduation projects, and she couldn't teach me anymore! So I switched over to AP art for the next 2 years and I ended up attending the Academy of Art College in San Francisco. Over the years, between 6/7 and now I learned how to various other crafts -- always keeping busy and always learning new techniques and crafts.

I sew, knit, crochet, embroider, weave (I have 5 looms!), tablet weave, make bobbin lace, counted cross stitch, rug hook, Swedish weave, punch needle, make dolls, quilt... my husband says that it is far easier to ask me what I don't do, than what I do! Making hand crafted items makes me happy and fulfills my need to create! It either keeps me IN or OUT of trouble -- depending on how you look at it!
