Phoenix, AZ

I enjoy a lot of different creative hobbies, especially sewing, quilting, beading, crochet, some knitting etc... I love to learn new things and ideas. I spent 20 years in the U.S. Navy before retiring and my hobbies often kept me sane and helped me meet new people who shared the same interest, at many different duty stations.
