Wadsworth, Ohio, USA

My mom taught me to sew buttons when I was 5. When I was 10 she taught me to sew with a machine, and I started making my own clothes. That same year (1966) she taught me to crochet. My cousin introduced me to knitting that year as well, but I didn't actually start knitting until after my first child was born in 1974. I enjoy all the needle arts, but my favorite is knitting.
