I learned to knit and crochet when I was around 5 years of age. My paternal grandmother taught me to crochet and my mother taught me to knit. That's almost 70 years ago, so I consider myself to be fairly experienced. My maternal grandmother taught me to embroider. I also sew - my paternal great-grandfather was a tailor and had his own bespoke tailoring business, so I guess you could say that sewing is in my dna. I just love to create things using knitting needles or crochet hook, or my trusty old sewing machine, which I bought back in 1974 and came with a 25 year warranty (try getting a 25 year warranty on anything today!) I get a tremendous amount of satisfaction when someone purchases an item I've made and is pleased with it. I guarantee all my handcrafted items and offer a full replacement or refund if you are not happy with any item you purchase, so long as the item is returned to me in original unused condition, within one week of purchase.
