I'm a sewer, quilter, embroiderer, knitter and also enjoy machine embroidery. I started my crafting at a very young age (just under 2 years) by stitching odd buttons to fabrics from my Mum's scrap box. My Mum taught me to knit when I was 5 but it was only about 7 years ago with the release of Patons Feather wool that I returned to knitting. In the intervening time I taught myself to embroider, patchwork, machine embroider and machine quilt.
