Welcome to Needle 'n Twine

I have always enjoyed the creative process of making things by hand.  I learned to make handcrafted items when I was a young girl from a very patient aunt who knew how to keep little girls busy.  I had free rein with a sewing machine, fabric, patterns, needle craft kits, and lots of encouragement.  As a young adult, I branched out and learned to knit and crochet from a terrific guild of knitters. 

My enjoyment of creating and making things by hand has never waned and I always have a project at my side. I enjoy creating new patterns, as well as, using traditional motifs in modern color ways and materials. My favorite materials to crochet and knit with are natural fibers such as wool, silk, cashmere, mohair, and alpaca. I quilt using all cotton fabrics and batting and like using batik fabrics which are unique not only pattern, but in color as well.

Thank you for visiting my shop and I hope you enjoy these handcrafted items and patterns as much as I enjoyed making them.
