I first taught myself to knit and crochet in 2002.  In the summer of 2003 I added tatting to my knowledge.  Spinning became my new craft in 2005 with the gift of an Ashford Traditional from my mother.  Over the years I continued to add embroidery, sewing, weaving, dyeing, and needle lace to my knowledge bank.  

I began designing patterns in 2010.  My design business really took off in 2015 when I started designing a sock club for BlackSheep at Orenco.  Now, I co-own the shop with Tina and Linda. I've written a book of sock patterns and I'm currently publishing a book of lace patterns.  I also teach throughout the country and bring my patterns as trunk shows to local yarn stores.  I'm currently designing for two clubs, the Tenceltown Club with the Knitting Boutique of Maryland, and the Blanket Knit-A-Long for BlackSheep at Orenco

I also have a Masters degree in Learning Design and Technology, so hopefully I can put my degree to use!
