“Fashioned by Carol Ann”
I have been involved with all sorts of crafts since I was a kid, mostly using fiber of some kind. Sewing, knitting and needlepoint being my main interests. My grandmother lived with us and there were times when all 3 of us were using our sewing machines or knitting at the same time. Great memories!!!
I recently completed a large tapestry which I donated to my church. It depicts the first day of Creation – “let there be light”.
I have often worked fabrics or yarns that I purchase in my travels. My most recent project is a jacket made with silk obtained in Thailand.
However, knitting is my long term interest. Since moving to Montana from New Jersey, I have found that the scenery, slower place of life and wonderful new friends have put me in a place very conducive to craft.
For years I made my husband shirts and sweaters and always sewed in a tag that read “Fashioned by Carol Ann”. It got to the point that he would check to see where I put the tag before he looked at the garment. Hence, the hang tags on my work.
I live north of town with my wonderful husband Jerry and our chocolate labs named Sula and Scout.
