Pieceful Creations began as a small hobby and grew into a full time, stay at home business for Tina Edgar. From 1998 to 2004 Pieceful Creations was dedicated to being a quilt and fabric online store but due to family life, we had to close our store for a few years, where I become a busy mother, with a volunteer job helping women and families in Cache Valley Utah. During that time, I began an old hobby of knitting and crochet to de-stress and get out of the house a few times a week with friends. I quickly learned that I loved exploring the different fiber arts. I learned to spin my own yarn, dye it, knit, crochet, loom knit, and even taught a few classes, at local retreats. Five years ago I began posting some of my patterns on Ravelry, with the hope that some day in the future I could do even more. Now is the time! Thank you to all my followers who have knitted some of my past designs and I hope you will enjoy the new ones as well as having the chance to learn new and exciting techniques and new ways of doing old well-loved yarn crafts! Welcome and may your tinks be few.....
