Meet the Winner
I've had an affinity for crafting my entire life. My fiber crafting probably began with latch hook rug kits and weaving pot holders when I was 7 or 8 years old, and progressed over the years to cross-stitch, macrame, knitting, sewing and just about anything else you can imagine.
I learned to crochet when I was about 10. My first project was a giant granny square, which turned into an afghan that I didn't finish until after I had graduated from high school. After graduating from Norwich University with a bachelor of arts in English and minor in the fine arts, and having no clue what I was going to do with my life, I spent the next 15 or so years working in the field of human resources. It wasn't until I made a huge career change and started working for the design office of a yarn company that I got into crochet design. I just became so inspired by all the amazing designs I got to see coming in every day!
