My Grandmother...Nona Rita...taught me to sew and knit at age 6... I never took to knitting, but I loved sewing! I got my first sewing machine for Christmas when I was 10...I still own it and a few more... I love to create, not so good following patterns...I would rather do it on my own...I love to work with natural fibers, cotton, linen and cashmere... I love scarves...I own more than I want to count...I love when someone likes my work...most of my winter cashmere creations are one of a kind.
