My interest in knitting and crochet started when I was very young. Around 6 or 7 years old. Both my Mother and Grandmother were avid knitters and crocheters.
I had a friend back in the eighties who acquired a spinning wheel and it immediately took my interest. I joined the local group and purchased a spinning wheel and I was away with a new interest. This one did take up a bit more room!
I joined the Guild while they were at the Meat Market and I learnt weaving in the early nineties. The Guild's move to Shakespeare St., saw me start my journey of teaching spinning. I do enjoy teaching as I feel I learn just as much from the students as they learn in class.
I feel my interest in all crafts is still growing. There is always something new to learn. I enjoy learning about the history and emergence of our crafts.
