I have crafted all my life. My mother was a home-ec teacher so a good guide. My great aunt made sure I could knit by the time I was 6 years old. I have always had a project of some kind underway. I am new to spinning and weaving. Spinning came to me in 2011 and weaving about a year later so I am a novice at both. Guilds have helped me in Ventura, CA and in Las Vegas NV.
