Wheaton, IL

Crafting has always been my passion. My favorite yarning techniques are knitting, crocheting, looming, and machine knitting. I also enjoy sewing, quilting, embroidery and often combine all 3 into one project. I do enjoy jewelry making occasionally. My husband is a baker by profession and I enjoy decorating his baked items. He also enjoys woodworking and I often decorate his projects.
