Hi I'm a mostly self-taught crafter and knitting instructor and recently took a quilting class that I really loved. My mom has machine quilted off and on most of my life but she never taught me anything about sewing. She did buy me my first sewing machine, though, when I was 26 years old. I live in NYC with my husband and cat and work in Staten Island as a Social Worker in the family court. I love needlework of all types and get a lot of stress release from creating things.
