I am 32, a wife of almost 4 years, a mom to an adorable daughter born in May 2015, and furmommy of two lovely black and white tuxie kitty boys. I have been crafty all of my life, and if you name it I have probably done it. My main passions are knitting, crochet, dyeing, spinning, and weaving. I’ve been knitting for ten years and crocheting since I was 4; dyeing became a passion in 2006 after I couldn’t find a color I was looking for at my local yarn store, so I created my own! I’m inspired mainly by colors, but a good texture can catch my eye sometimes as well. I dye as often as I can, and I try to keep my colorways fresh and varied. I have over 200 repeatable “stock colorways” and come up with new ones almost every week!
I taught myself to spin in December of 2009, and it’s a huge passion of mine! My first wheel was a Fricke ST160, but I really wanted a double treadle; so I sold my Fricke and bought a Majacraft Suzie at Stitches South 2010, and I added a Hansen MiniSpinner in March 2012. (I’ve also had a Schacht Sidekick and a Majacraft Little Gem, but they’ve since gone on to new homes.) I enjoy spinning up yarns for the shop that I would be proud to use myself.
