New Zealand

Ive been a "crafter" since I was old enough to hold a needle, with embroidery being the first craft i tried. I am an accomplised dressmaker, having made clothes and Ballgowns for many years. Other crafts I enjoy are quilting, all types of embroidery, knitting, spinning, crochet, cardmaking, as well as many other crafts that enhance my main interests.
