I have always enjoyed working with my hands and creating beautiful things. Quilt making and knitting are my two favorite hobbies. Quilts are an exploration and I can't wait to see what my fabrics will look like when I'm finished with the quilt. All Quilts are well illustrated and edited for clarity. I am also a TKGA certified Master Knitter. I started knitting after college and it's been a great passion in my life. Some of my patterns are specifically designed with Sky High Fibers hand painted yarns in mind, the others are more generic. All patterns are edited for accuracy, written to be as simple as possible and includes charts and schematics when necessary.
