A Little Yarn About How This Crafty Site Came To Be…

Hey there, my name is Jodie. Yes, I’m a real person 🙂 Thanks for being here.

I’m an Australian, traveling with my family.

Why did I create this site? Simple! I love everything craft 🙂

I’`ve met many other fabulous crafters through this site.

Ridged Shawl Knitting Pattern by Plymouth Yarns in Katia Baby Merino Plus

I’ve knitted blankets, sweaters, hats and scarves/cowls.  I’ve hand stitched quilts, machine quilted, crocheted and sewn my own clothes. I love drawing mandalas in gorgeous colors.

My mother, now Granny to my children and my grandmother inspired my craftiness from a young age.

I’ve spent many hours online trying to find information on craft projects. After finding some incredibly helpful info, I thought ‘Why not put together a resource for people who want to get back into craft?’

Hence the creation of the Crafty Like Granny weekly newsletter.

My aim is to reduce the amount of time  people have to search for fantastic, helpful information, inspirational reading and craft news.

A little bit more about me…

I grew up in Melbourne, Australia.

I attended the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology, where I met the man of my dreams.

Later I went to La Trobe University to complete a Graduate Diploma in Secondary Education.

Having taught in a high school for a number of years, I joined the Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Program. I taught the benefits of organic gardening and healthy eating in a primary school.

Teaching kids to grow organic vegetables and cook with those vegetables was a joy.

I continue to enjoy crafting in my spare time, making quilts, sewing clothes, knitting and crocheting.

I love chatting with readers, say hi here.

Yours in Craftiness 🙂
