Crochet was introduced to her as a pre-teen, but became an obsession in 2008 when her son was born, so she opened a little shop to bring others joy! When she isn’t working with yarn, Erin enjoys her two fur babies, hockey, scrapbooking, coloring with the kids, baking, Star Wars, beading, reading, and watching true crime books or shows.
