Plano, TX

I started crocheting and knitting when I was 4 years old, and over the years have branched out to include rigid heddle loom weaving, triangle and square loom weaving, sewing, serging, scrapbooking, cross stitch, needlepoint, rug looping, professional chocolatier certification, baking professional cakes and desserts. Just love it all.
