Helene has spent most of her life surrounded by crafts in some form. Her mother and grandmother were both active crafters and passed that love on to her. She learned to sew at a teaching retreat and has never looked back. Her knowledge of textile crafts is extensive, especially when it concerns quilting, crochet, cross stitch, and embroidery. She is currently focusing on crafting as not only a hobby but, as a way to make a living doing what she loves.
