I've been sewing since about forever, taught to me by my mom. I've quilted for ages too - self taught, with lots of mistakes and lots of enthusiasm. I've been knitting off and on, more on lately, for about 10 years. My grandmother was a great hand-crafter - knitting, quilting, tatting, crocheting. I love Craftsy for giving me far more insight, great ideas, and methods to do all these things better.
