A little about me:
I have been knitting since I was about 8 years old. My mother taught me to knit and my parents encouraged me to explore all kinds of arts & crafts activities by providing me with the materials that I needed to create. As a girl, I loved to sew (I spent hours using my mother’s sewing machine making clothes for my dolls), knit, draw and paint. In high school, I spent all my extra time at school hanging out in the art room. In college, I worked at a cute little yarn store and I still have some yarn in my stash that I bought at that store…way too many years ago!
I love giving hand knit gifts to my friends and family. In these days of mass produced gifts (that often require a plug-in cord or battery) it is nice to give something that is truly one-of-a-kind. I love to see the smile on their faces when they open the gift I made for them.I live in Kansas with my husband and two teenage children. I enjoy knitting (of course!), teaching my daughter to sew, going to my son’s sporting events, baking, making jam in the summer, making homemade gingerbread houses in December, taking photos and going to the beach (not in Kansas!).
Fifty Four Ten Studio:
Fifty Four Ten Studio is named for the house number of the home my grandparents purchased in 1950, when my mother was 12 years old. They had lived in a one bedroom apartment hotel for many years and this was the first home they owned. Still today, many years after the home was sold, my mother and her sister refer fondly to their childhood home…by the house number…5410.
This is an old photo of their house....
