Motherhood reawakened the creator in me.

Growing up in the Santa Cruz Mountains, I formed a deep appreciation for nature and organic beauty. A product of my environment, I was always independent – exploring the woods and falling deep into books and my artsy projects.

Somewhere along the way, I devoted my creative energy to high tech, which impacted my education and career path in undeniable ways. But it also sidetracked me from my low-tech creative outlets. I need a balance to be happy.

After my first child was born, I had to find something quiet to do during nap time and in the evenings. One beautiful afternoon in Santa Cruz, I fell in love with Manos del Uruguay yarn. I had to have this yarn but had no idea how to knit or crochet. So I learned to crochet. Quickly, I was making more products than I could personally wear or gift. I started selling items on Etsy and loved it. While shopping for yarn, I discovered all these fabulous fabric designers and bought a ton of fabric before I knew how to sew or quilt... Then came the sewing machine and I started quilting. The rest is yarn and fabric hoarding history.

During the day, I am still a marketeer in high tech, but there's something incredibly satisfying about creating a beautiful and tangible product with my own two hands. It's a feeling that no pixels can fulfill.

Now that I've brought to life two amazing little humans (and am done making babies), I can redirect my creator energy to my hobbies.

Fiber artists and teachers who inspire me include Gloria Loughan, David Taylor, Kaffe Fassett, and Sue Spargo.

I love fabric, yarn, and wonderful handmade creations. My bliss is to spread that joy and make beautiful fabrics and yarns accessible to everyone. Each item I buy is one that inspires me and that I can instantly envision a project for. Nothing gives me greater happiness than to see the finish product you've created with the materials and patterns from my store.
