I started sewing in home economics in junior high school (it was not called middle school then). I've sewn everything from bags & everyday clothing, to wedding garments. I have also quilted a few small quilts over the years. Finally, I started knitting in 2015 after seeing the beautiful knitting of my neighbor. Now I am addicted to buying every craftsy class possible......I mean seriously addicted.
