Featured Artist: RSSDesignsInFiber

Check out our new featured artist RSSDesignsInFiber! Read a little bit more about her below. Then click on her links and show her some love. Thanks!!!

What do you create?

I crochet and knit with either thread or yarn - some of the designs are by other people, some are my own designs.

What made you start?
I have liked doing crafts since I was a little girl - I guess you could say it was my urge to make things and have fun at it that made me start - it also helped that my mother was an artist and was teaching me some things when I was just a toddler.

How long have you been crafting/selling/creating?
I've been crafting since I was a little girl - don't remember exactly when I started. I've been creating and selling since the fall of 2002. I started selling some photography in the 1980's, but I don't classify that as crafting.

Do you have any short/long term goals?
Short term goals are to get as many projects as I can done and sold - I have designs and patterns all over my home and there are many of them I want to do - I try to relate what I am doing to the current season. Long-term goals are very general -- just to continue doing crafts and create more of my own designs.
