I was born with a love for making things. At a very young age, my Mom would give me pieces of fabric and free reign in the button and trim boxes to make clothes for my dolls. When I was 8, my Grandmother taught me to crochet and I was smitten. At 12, a friend of my Mom’s taught me to knit which quickly became another passion.
I love teaching and watching my students develop their own passions and life-long hobbies. When owning a yarn shop for many years, I enjoyed running it, teaching and designing. Since then, I have been designing, mostly for Cascade Yarns, for about 20 years.
Currently, I do designing, pattern tech editing, teaching, and knitting and volunteering for several charitable organizations. I love it all!
