a crafty port of call
I live in the historic sea side town of Gloucester, MA. The name Beauport Stitches is inspired by one of my favorite beaches there, Good Harbor. I spent many happy childhood summer days enjoying the surf and sand on Good Harbor Beach with my family and many summer night moonlit walks while I was dating my husband.
Hand me a hook and a skein of yarn and I’m a happy hooker! I can’t just sit still – I need to be doing something, creating something, reading something or in the kitchen making a mess attempting to cook something.
I learned how to crochet from my Nana Barnes and my mother helped me with knitting.
Any sewing skills I have, I picked up in my 6th through 8th grade Home Ec. classes.
I like to craft the usual and the unusual. As the proprietor of Beauport Stitches I fully enjoy the journey of the stitch. From the idea then to the medium used and the progress with all the successes and froggings and rip outs! When one stitch journey is over I can’t wait for another to begin.
My “to do” list for crafts is now longer than my time left on earth, I’m sure! BUT…..I’m going to try to do it all anyways!
