Who or what is the inspiration for your pincushions?
I'm originally from Western Massachusetts where there is an enormous flea market a few times a year. One vendor at the flea market always had the most gorgeous display of new and vintage handmade pincushions for sale. They were DARLING and I decided to try to create a little of the beauty I found in her display for myself.
Do you sew for yourself?
Yes! I am a quilter, and I also enjoy sewing clothing and other projects for my daughter (who is almost two).
Why do you craft?
I come from a long line of crafters, so I'm pretty sure it's in my blood! To me, crafting is like therapy. It feels wonderful to create someting tangible with my hands, and to use the creative part of my brain. I also love to be able to give one-of-a-kid gifts to family and friends.
