Meet the Maker
First, I want to say thank you so much for visiting my shop, and supporting my handmade dream. I adore all of my customers, and I am so grateful for each and every one of you.
So ... what's the story behind Double the Stitches?
The name of my shop, Double the Stitches, was dreamed up one sleepless night after bringing home our newborn twin boys and thinking that any time I wanted to make something for them I’d need “double the stitches”! They are my gifts and my reasons and my inspiration.
How long have you been stitchin'?
I first learned the art of crochet as a young girl, and have been perfecting my skills and learning new techniques for almost 25 years now. Knitting was something I hoped I would one day master (working with 2 needles seemed daunting at first!) until I took it on as a New Years resolution after I had my twin boys 5 years ago, and I was instantly hooked!
What are your favorite materials to create with?
I’ve always had a love and a passion for creating by hand, and enjoy working with all types of materials. My current favorite fibers are natural ones … fuzzy angora, mohair and baby alpaca – they are soft, delicate, dreamy, luxurious with a beautiful halo.
What's the best part of being a prop knitter?
There is nothing sweeter and more rewarding than seeing an item I handcrafted on a sweet adorable little baby and having the opportunity for my work to be a small part of their newborn photos that will be forever cherished.
