I'm a knitter, a crocheter, a tatter...and all around crafter. My Knit and Crochet items include baby blankets, scarves, cowls, hats, baby sweater sets, and home decor items. I also make Amigurumi, Bookmarks, Key Chains and other things. All are personally handmade and quality checked by me. I have also written both crochet and knit patterns.
Handcrafting is part of my heritage and has been handed down through my family over the years, from my mother's mother, to my mother, to me. I have been crafting for over 50+ years. Even with years of hand crafting experience, I continue to research new ideas and concepts as I create each of my creations, or patterns.
Mission - To use my skills and knowledge to make creative, quality, handmade creations. Also to create beautiful as well as functional items which will enhance peoples lives and bring a smile to their faces at affordable prices.
Knitting and Crochet - All my life I have loved making knit and crochet items. I love the warmth of yarn crochet, the elegance of thread crochet, the beauty of designs, the drape of knitting, and the softness of yarns. I can't stand to sit still without a knit or crochet project in my hands and my day is not complete if I am not working on something. I create for the pure joy I get out of making something beautiful and functional out of yarn and thread.
Tatting - The art of making lace using a shuttle and thread captured my interest several years ago. Since that time I have worked hard to achieve the status of Tatting Artist for shuttle tatting. Bookmarks, earrings, necklaces, bracelets, decorations, etc. all made knot by knot are perfect as gifts or as a special treat for yourself.
Credentials and Memberships - I am certified as a Crochet Guild of America (CGOA) Crochet Master, a Thread Artist Guild Master Thread Artist, and as a Tatters Across Time Tatting Artist. I maintain memberships in the Knitting Guild Association (TKGA), and the Crochet Guild of America (CGOA). In addition, I was the Founder and Leader of the Thread Artist Guild from 2005 to 2013 where I was honored to achieve the level of Master Thread Artist. I am also a founding member of the Guild of Master Bearcrafters.
