Carrie has been knitting since she was six or seven when her grandmother taught her one rainy summer in Vermont. Crochet came along soon after that when someone gave her “The Reader’s Digest Encyclopedia of Needlework.” She loved to get inspired by a stitch pattern and see where it would take her. Always a seamstress she fell into the custom drapery and bedding industry when she and her husband moved to Texas in 1982. Seven years of working in an interior design workroom, she and a friend started their own business in 1990. From then to now it has been an interesting time of turning Designers’ ideas into a finished product on the clients’ walls or beds. She always kept up with her handwork be it crewel, counted cross stitch, crochet, tunisian, or knitting as a hobby. Carrie knits lace shawls, crochet afghans, and amigurumi critters as part of the Manchaca United Methodist Craft Group. Carrie has taught many people to craft over the years, and started officially teaching at The Knitting Nest in 2014. With its closure, she found a new teaching home at The Sated Sheep! Let’s make some string pretty!
