I learned to knit in 2006 and have enjoyed learning new skills like lacework. I wanted to branch out to weaving and bought a loom early in 2013 which I have yet to warp! Around the same time I bought a sewing machine and it has stolen my heart. I am learning piecework and have a vision of a wall of mini-quilts in my hallway. I love the quick payback and versatility of sewing, compared to knitting, which is a slow art.
