"My first memory of sewing was on my grandmother's quilt when I was three years old. It's been a tumultuous relationship ever since, full of victories and losses. These days, if there's a craft technique I haven't tried, it's probably on my wish list.

I want to inspire my blog visitors to jump in, stretch their creativity and not be afraid to make mistakes along the way. When I'm not on my blog, Crafty Staci, you'll find me at my shop, where I focus on handmade accessories for makers, artists, photographers, teachers, and people on the go."
