I’ve been knitting and crocheting since the age of eight. These fine arts and other genres of needlework have always been part of my life.  I won a Singer Sewing contest when I was 12 years old.   Previous background also includes business management and writing and editing.

I am the recipient of multiple national awards for my afghan design work in both knit and crochet. My work has appeared with Mary Maxim, Herrschners and Caron. Afghans I designed have been featured on publication front covers.  As well, my ‘Floral Spray’ is featured on the front cover of a Maxim ‘Best Of’ book and my ‘Shoots & Ladders’ afghan is featured on the inside front cover of a Herrschners ‘Best Of’’ Book.

As to knitting and crochet, full-time, I am devoted to:

  • Teaching (individual, group, institutional) general and custom knit and crochet lessons at all levels and topics
  • Researching and study (library of over 3,000 books and publications)
  • Designing
  • Writing and editing designs to final publication status, focusing on clearly written, comprehensive patterns
  • Preparing new lessons and tutorials
  • Lecture and presentations to interested groups
