Skills and Techniques

I have nearly a decade of experience with macrame and hemp. I learned a new technique of knotting called 'tatting' which I incorporate into several of my hemp pieces. In Fall of 2010 I learned how to spin fiber into yarn.

Get to Know

HempCraft(TM) began in October 2010 with the belief that I could work for myself and do what I love. With complete support from family and friends, and determined to follow my own path, I felt free and open to see where I could take it. It's a beautiful thing when a career and a passion come together. HempCraft(TM) became a full time job for me and a functioning small business within the first year and continues to grow. And with it grow my skills, motivation, and creativity. I continuously seek to learn new methods and apply new ideas. The possibilities of what one can do, attempt, and explore are endless. In 2012, my husband and biggest support joined on part time and is currently head of shipping. He lends his ideas, time, and occasionally his handyman skills to help make things run smoothly. He doesn't like to take credit for any of it but honestly, I couldn't do it without him. I believe simple is beautiful and I express this view in my work as well as in my life. I live peacefully, passionately, and try my best to step lightly on our earth. I keep the same idea in mind when I source my materials and supplies. I consider what it took to bring it into existence, how long it will last, and where it will end up.
