Lisa has always been a tinkerer of sorts, from building things to formulating ideas. Recognizing the spark, her grandmother, a master seamstress taught her to sew, crochet and knit, among other crafts. At 9 years of age, Lisa had to do a report on what she wanted to be when she grew up. She asked her grandmother what is a person who crochets called? Grandma paused, and said there is no name, but you can become a seamstress and be both in your report. And there it began. Craft and bazaar shows, and of course designing. Each time Lisa made a mistake, grandma, stern with her craft, would make her do it over numerous times. Over the years, Lisa has authored numerous books and her designs have also appeared in many magazines. Her latest is the cover of Interweave Crochet Winter 2020, and a book Timeless Edgings Baby Blankets from Annie's Attic coming out in Spring of 2020. Lisa is married with two children.
