1 How did you first get introduced to your craft?
Wow, that was many years ago, but I think it was my friend Carla who got me interested in cross stitch, which led me to plastic canvas; I've never looked back!
2 What type of patterns do you enjoy designing the most?
I enjoy designing Christmas villages and useful things my daughter, who is a teacher, can use in her classroom.
3 What are you most known for?
Beading and embellishments.
4 How do you jump-start your creativity?
With a trip to my local craft stores to look at all the colors of the floss, yarn, beads, buttons, jewels, ribbons, stickers, etc...
5 What season inspires you the most?
The Christmas season!
6 On average, how many new patterns do you design each year?
I'd say approximately 30.
7 Is there another craft you'd like to try your hand at?
While plastic canvas will always be my favorite, I wish I knew how to knit and quilt. Scrapbooking looks like fun, too, with all the decorations.
8 What is your favorite way to spend a Sunday afternoon?
Stitching and beading my latest design while watching black and white 1940s movies.
9 What three items do you always have in your craft bag?
Craft bag? I have too many craft items for just a bag! But if I have to pick just 3, I'd say plastic canvas, floss and a sharp needle. (Can I add chocolate to that list?)
