Occupation Teaching High School
Location Charlotte and Concord, NC, United States
Introduction I grew up beside my Grandmother's sewing machine. As long as I can remember, fabric and yarn have been a part of my life. Any time I need comfort, chicken pot pie, chocolate pie and some fabric in my hands instantly soothes me. If I sound dramatic, I am. I taught Theatre Arts in the public school system to Elementary and High School students for 10 years or so. Before the red hair was for kicks and giggles. But now it is to cover my well earned gray. So now I want a crafty, calm life with color and fabric. I have finally decided to sew and sew and knit and knit and crochet until I just poop out!!!!
