My Bio

Crocheting is like gardening.  You can do it for the rest of your life and never learn it all.  And as gardeners learn to end a season and look forward to the next so that all old mistakes are forgotten and a new opportunity will present itself next gardening season, the crocheter completes another piece of fabric and looks forward to the next.  All mistakes are left in the past and a new pattern becomes another opportunity to improve one's knowledge.  Crocheting is more than the making of a thing, it is the expression of an artist.  I give private and group lessons for beginners and experienced crocheters alike.  I taught technical writing in a previous life and seem to spend a lot of time rewriting crochet patterns to meet technical writing standards for clarity.  I also write patterns for piece of "found" crochet from antique shops and yard sales.  Finally, I have several designs for a variety of fabrics and garments and an ongoing 'scrapbook' of projects.  I have written a book for beginning crocheters that I have published myself.
