I've been crafting practically all my life. I remember teaching myself to crochet when I was just old enough to understand the directions, and making doilies was my fav. Over the years, I've knitted, crocheted, macraméd, needlepointed, cross-stitched. Garment sewing was a necessity, then became a business until I found that I couldn't charge enough to make a living. Now quilting is my passion and I swear I'm going to master FMQ!
