I have had a lifelong love of crafts which started when I was taught to knit at a very young age. It didn’t take too long to realise that great joy and satisfaction came from making things. It doesn’t matter if it’s something I’ve made or whether it’s when I teach someone else how to make it, I still get a thrill. That's why I love to share and pass on my skills and knowledge so that you can get the same pleasure and satisfaction from creating a gorgeous finished item.
