About

It's not really a shack, more like a warehouse in my head.

My shop just kind of happened. I was working at JoAnn's in the town next to me and then I was released by the new manager. I was literally devastated because it was the perfect job for me and then it was gone.

So, I did what any sane girl would do (insert chuckle here) and I turned to my then husband. "Open an Etsy shop," he said. "Sell your things, your way." And when I couldn't think of a name, I turned to my Facebook friends.

And in May of 2013, Knit Knack Patty Shack was born!

Granted, my shop was born in 2013, but my love for crafting was born long before that. In fact, it came at a time when my life was turned upside down. I am part of the 50% of children who grew up in a divorced home. My personality flipped, causing me to be quiet and withdrawn and often alone. My step-mother, watching this change in me making her unhappy, bought a me a bead weaving loom for Christmas when I was 9.

I was enchanted by it! The beauty of the simple patterns formed by the beads in simple lines were intoxicating! Soon, I was stringing beads into necklaces and bracelets and giving them to friends.

My grandmother handed me a cross stitch kit when I was 16, saying "Here, maybe you can figure this out!" And figure it out I did. So much so, that I would borrow books from the library just to cross stitch during my free time.

Then came college and I was married. I remember watching my mother-in-law mover her hands quickly through yarn and hook, mesmerizing me as she went. She smiled and handed me hook and yarn with the simple instruction to just watch. And watch I did!

Then came the second son and the need for something new. My grandmother had tried to teach me to knit, to no avail. when I was nine. It ended with both of us crying. In August of 2009, I called her one evening and asked how to get my yarn around for a purl stitch. She explained and I was well on my way, completing my first pair of gloves in September of the same year.

By April of 2010, psoriasis had taken over my whole body, effecting my hands to the point of none movement. I cried and lamented because I thought my crafting days were over. After moving to another house a year later and reducing my stress levels, my psoriasis cleared up and I was able to craft again.

I decided in the summer of 2012 that I needed to learn how to use a sewing machine. YouTube became my best friend. I started out only making linings for my crocheted handbags, but then I discovered Pinterest and my love for quilting began.

By December of 2015, my divorce was finalized. I was alone and in a new apartment without my kids or my dog. And I turned to knitting and quilting and crocheting and sewing. I let all the things that I loved heal me.

I'm still healing. I'm better now than I was then.

    I was born in the spring of 1983 in a town that shares the Kentucky/Tennessee state line. Though I once lived in Cincinnati, I returned home to Williamsburg, Kentucky in my mid 20s. I have been here since. My "shop" is nestled in my living room.
