Hello everyone. I’m Stephanie and I’m so happy to be the Yarn and Needlework contributor for Think Crafts. A friend taught me to crochet back in 2000 and I’ve been hooked on fiber crafts ever since. Knitting soon followed, then spinning, needle felting and sewing joined the team. I love making my own clothes and home accessories. Making clothes from thrift store finds is one of my passions. Creating fun monsters out of sparkly yarn is my current obsession. I blog about my crafty creations and belly dancing at Twillight Kallisti.
