How’d you get started?
As far back as I can remember, creativity has defined who I am. There’s something truly magical about crafting with my own hands and witnessing the finished project come to life–a feeling I cherish every single time.

Being a part of the Ridgeway-Crystal Beach community has been a lifelong joy for me, and now, as a small business owner here, I still pinch myself in disbelief. Doing what I love in a place I adore is a dream come true.

What’s your greatest achievement?
Organizing and hosting a weekend fibre retreat has definitely been a highlight of my career so far!

Community is the heartbeat of The Creative Knitter, so l always knew that a retreat was something that I absolutely had to do. Was I nervous to bring 30 women together for a weekend where they would be looking to me for guidance, organization, fun, and an amazing retreat experience? Um, heck yes.

My biggest fear going into the weekend was that I would suck at hosting a retreat and no one would have fun but man, did I underestimate myself. I am so proud to say that Camp Create was the most perfect weekend ever. Not only for me, but for everyone that attended. And I know that because every single woman in that space opened their hearts, made new friends, connected with old friends, worked on projects together, helped one another, laughed with each other, and sometimes even cried together.
