Originally from Racine, Wisconsin, I now reside in Texas. I graduated from the University of Houston with a BFA in Art (Graphic Design) and have been creating needlework for more than 50 years. Over the years, I have earned the coveted title of TKGA Master Hand Knitter, became a Craft Yarn Council of America certified knitting instructor, and completed the Crochet Guild of America Master of Advanced Crochet Stitches and Techniques program. As a perfectionist by nature, I hold myself to very high standards. If I am not pleased with the final outcome of a project, you won't find it in my shop. This means you can expect a well-made product — one that has uniform stitches and all of the loose ends securely woven into the work — that also has been created with pride from high quality materials. I do ship internationally. Because international shipping rates vary greatly from country to country, please inquire about the shipping cost to your country if it is not already listed.
