the bit about me

I’m a crafting gal who’s very lucky to have a great husband, three terrific kids and one fat cat. Originally from Southern California, I’ve lived in beautiful British Columbia for over 25 years and raised my family in this lovely corner of the world.

I learned to knit, crochet and sew from my mom long, long ago and I love that it’s a life-long passion that I’ve shared with my sister and now my daughter. In recent years I’ve added in weaving, spinning, a bit of quilting.

My sister and I joined forces a few years ago and began Emerald Lotus Fiberarts, our small crafty business. We dye and sell yarn, we spin, we write patterns. During the summer we set up our booth at the Edmonds Summer Market and we also sell some of our yarn at All Wound Up in Edmonds, Washington. Doing this together is something we’ve always wanted to do and would make our mom happy and proud to see her daughters crafting together.

Thanks for stopping by!
