What types of crafts are your favorite?

Needlework of all kinds—cross-stitch, sewing, embroidery, crochet, knitting.

What colors can’t you get enough of right now?

Fall colors are my favorites, so I use reds, golds, and browns year-round. I also love all shades of blue.

What made/makes you so passionate about crafting?

Everyone in my family is a maker of some sort. It’s second nature for me to always have at least one creative project in process.

If you could craft with any person in the world, living or dead, who would it be and why?

I recently learned that one of my great-grandmothers was a milliner. I would love to make some hats with her!

In one word, how would you describe your crafting style?


Where do you get creative inspiration from?

I’m inspired primarily by nature—flowers, leaves, fruits, vegetables—but I find design ideas pretty much everywhere.

You’re stranded on a desert island. What three craft supplies couldn’t you live without?

Felt, embroidery floss, and a needle. (Scissors would be my fourth item, but if I am limited to three, I’d make a cutting tool out of something on the island.)

Where do you buy your supplies?

Etsy for specialty items., Joann Fabric, and Michael’s for fabric, floss, and basic supplies.
