Interests

Knitting and crocheting have been my passion since I was a teenager. I love to sew, especially costumes for Halloween and the Renaissance Faire. I love to dance and go to Zumba and Dance Fusion classes. Acting your age is no fun whatsoever.

Skills and Techniques

I love knitting Aran and cable patterned sweaters. The more complicated, the better. I only make these as gifts for my friends and family because they take weeks to make and would be very expensive. I make affordable winter cable knit hats that I will list for sale when it gets cold.

Get to Know

If your Nana doesn't knit or crochet, you can still get a fabulous hat for Christmas, your Birthday or just because. I'm one crazy Memaw. I design and make all my own things with quality materials. Imports and machine-made use scratchy materials and fall apart. Buy hand made, made in the U.S.A.!!! I started selling my crafts in the 1970's as one of the first street vendors on Berkeley's Telegraph Avenue, but had to get a "real" job, as we all eventually do. After 25 years working at UC Berkeley, I retired to raise my autistic grandson. Happily this decision has led me back to my love of crafting and running my own business. As you can see from my offerings, I'm a very silly person. My lovely daughter encourages my immature nature. Check her out at her Artfire shop: http://www.tinybully.artfire.com
