1 How did you first get introduced to your craft?
I started crocheting as a very young girl. As a newlywed, my husband and I worked a job that had us traveling all over the country. I spent much of our travel time improving my skill and making all sorts of gifts for friends and family. After the birth of my fourth child (my first daughter), I began designing hats and accessories for her to wear. I opened a shop to sell my items and soon after started selling my designs.
2 What type of patterns do you enjoy designing the most?
I most enjoy designing hats and headbands. There are endless possibilities for designs, and they work up quickly. They are also a big favorite of beginner crocheters.
3 What are you most known for?
Designing easy-to-read, easy-to-crochet patterns which are fun for crocheters of all levels of expertise.
4 How do you jump-start your creativity?
I am dreaming up new designs every day, I just wish I had the time to see them all through! If I happen to be stuck in a rut, I read a crochet magazine or book, try a new stitch pattern or purchase some new yarn.
5 What season inspires you the most?
I find inspiration everywhere I look! I am inspired by clothing and accessories I see on people I pass by, modern trends, crochet magazines, and my own wardrobe or children's wardrobes.
6 On average, how many new patterns do you design each year?
7 Is there another craft you'd like to try your hand at?
I have some basic knitting skills, but would love to expand on them!
8 What is your favorite way to spend a Sunday afternoon?
Sunday afternoons are always family time. We love taking our kids out for hikes or picnics, spending time at a park, or going for a long drive (a great opportunity to crochet!). If it's rainy, then I love to cuddle up with my kids on the couch and watch movies (and crochet, of course)!
9 What three items do you always have in your craft bag?
My pencil case (which holds my crochet hooks, scissors and yarn needles), a good selection of yarn, and my iPad (which contains all of my patterns, notes, sketches, orders, ideas, crochet magazines, books, etc.).
