About Me

I am Nonna Rose...

I have been happily married to  my high school sweetheart for more than 40 years; we have two grown children and one delightful grandchild. My family and friends are the  most important to me, so I enjoy making things for them to show how much I care.

I have been a needle crafter for more than 40 years.  As a child, I watched her mother and grandmother create beautiful one-of-a kind items. My mother was a seamstress and fashioned garments for the entire family.  My grandmother crocheted fine threads into gorgeous handmade lace.  Before I was a teenager I was sewing my own clothes, and began to crochet and knit. 

I am not a designer, but a practical creator.  I have a passion for handmade quality knits and one-of-a-kind sewn and crocheted items.  During the past 25 years,  knitting has taken center stage. I like to say that knitting is like yoga for the mind.  It is an activity which frees me of stress.  

I have a masters degree in education and  years of teaching experience in the classroom.  I use that teaching experience to teach needle arts to children and adults of all ages and walks of life. 

In addition to knitting/crocheting and sewing, I am an avid reader and dabble with writing short stories. I also enjoying cooking and playing with my digital camera.
