Lisa has been a crafter most of her life, beginning with her mother teaching her to sew her own clothes. She continued the tradition and made most of her children's clothing. Her daughters used to tell their friends they had their own personal designer. She still sews, quilts, knits and needlepoints, but her true passion is crochet. Her children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews have provided constant inspiration for her designs.
Her favorite designs are children and baby clothing. She loves working in polyester yarns (worsted and baby) because they wash so easily.
