About me

Industry Arts
Occupation artisan
Location San Mateo, California, United States
Introduction I am the owner/creator of KaratStix, a little home-based business where I make tools for knitters and other fiber artists from earth friendly bamboo. I will share history, future ideas, and some personal stuff too, like what I love to eat and do. I am married to my soul mate and have two wonderful stepchildren and a granddaughter. My husband and I are the proud pets of a Congo African Grey parrot owner (you'd think he'd be the pet, but he tells us what to do and where to go so I think sometimes it's his perspective that counts).
