I learned to crochet from my grandmother when I was about 9 years old. I came back to crochet when I was given her hooks(Boye), books and yarn when she passed away in 1996. I started exploring more techniques and gained confidence. My husband and I moved to WA state from the NJ and where my crocheting really gained strength. The Northwest is full of wonderful yarn shops and plenty of guilds and private "knitting" groups, of which I was invited to join. My first design for pay was to Cascade Yarns in Seattle WA in 2007? Love for my craft has just grown.
I have sold many designs to Cascade Yarns, as well asWindyValley Muskox, Red Heart. My designs have been published in Crochet!, Crochet World, Crochet 123 magazines. In the fall of 2013 my first book came out from Annies Publishing, "Elegant, Fashionable, Chic Accessories to Crochet". My 5th book, published by Leisure Arts, is due Spring of '17.
I am a Professional member of The Crochet Guild of America, a member of the CGOA Board of Directors and a Member of TNNA (The National Needlearts Association).
I currently live in Central Florida with my husband.
