Hi! I'm Katie. I'm your crazy neighborhood fiber crafter and mom. I source my materials from other small businesses, so when you buy from me, you're helping to support many families including mine. Each of my items is unique and made with love. What creative journey will I inspire you to embark on today? 

My mom actually got me started on this fiber journey. I mentioned that drop spinning looked impossible, so she put a spindle in my hand and showed me how.
I took that quick lesson and ran with it. From there I began spinning on a homemade top whorl spindle, then, with much celebration, I got my wheel.
Bonnie and I have gone a lot of places together, but such is the nature of a travel wheel. She to me came from texas, and then we traveled to Pennsylvania and then back to South Carolina.
From there I just dove face first into the world of fiber arts. I wanted to try ALL the fiber related crafts I could get my hands on, and I did. Some I liked, some I loved, some I decided were not for me.
Knitting became my other love, along with my spinning. The more I learned about knitting, the more the gears in my head started turning. Soon I was looking through Ravelry, not for patterns, but for inspiration.
I was designing! Some things I wrote down, others just flowed off the needles too quickly. There were plenty of flops, lots of "what was I thinking" but I learned so much from those.
