I'm happy to say that Associated Content was sold to Yahoo! Contributor Network last year. I'm now a Crafts and Needlework writer. I'm excited about the new changes and I hope to bring my expertise to all yarn and pattern lovers.

I'm a professional designer with patterns published by Annie's Attic, The Needlework Shop, The American School of Needlework, Annie's Patterns and Needlework, Crochet World and Annie's Scrap Crochet Club.

I enjoy designing shawls and using the Pineapple stitch and the Filet stitch whenever I can. Although crocheting is my first love, I'm also proficient in other needlework techniques including tapestry, knitting, cross stitch, embroidery, and plastic canvas. I also design in beading and mosaics.

I do demonstrations for a leading craft store on the East Coast so I'm familiar with all types of crafts. I enjoy crafting with recyclables, anything that has to do with paper, plastic and glass. I like creating with clay. It's fun for me to design crafts for children especially interactive type crafts such as toys, puppets, games and after-school activities.

Holidays bring out many new ideas but I'm not limited to Christmas, Valentine's Day and Easter. I take pleasure in the more obscure celebrations, such as Three Kings Day and Beltane. I teach large crowds and individually, both young and old. I am always learning something new so, my skills are dynamic. I have a personal charity called A Stocking Full Of Love. Handmade stockings, collected from my internet friends are distributed to children that may be less fortunate than our own.

Row Home Magazine hired me 2 years ago, where I specialize in writing about people, places and things in South Philadelphia. I also write a weekly column for the Philadelphia Public Record called, Within Walking Distance. I don’t drive!

Recently, I won two contests. My Ballet Stars Afghan won Pattern of the Month at Crochet World. At the website AntiCraft, my pattern for a Spider Stitch Trivet won in their Imbolc issue. I'm also a singer/songwriter, stand-up comic, actor and Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Clown College graduate.
