Get to Know

I've been crafting for as long as I can remember, I spent hours watching my mom knit intricate cable knit sweaters and made doll clothes with grandma. Now I knit, sew, photograph and generally craft. In recent years, I've focused on giving patchwork and quilting a modern update, with great colors, fabrics and modern design.

In the rest of my life I'm an educator, working at a college and adult education program, a photographer, a general DIY-er, a growing locavore, and general proponent of my little corner of the world, the Pioneer Valley of western Massachusetts that inspired my name.
