Nothing But String by Emily





Whether it’s beading, crocheting, knitting or sewing, it all has one thing in common: the thread that holds it all together.

I learned to crochet as a child from my Italian grandmother, but this isn’t your grandmother’s crochet any longer. Like any art form over time it’s grown and matured, and what started out as a childhood hobby is now my life’s work.

As part of my growth path, I’ve also taught myself to knit, and I’ve continued to explore the story of thread through the different yarns that I use.

The story doesn’t stop there though. They say that necessity is the mother of invention, and it was through my need for uniquely colorful thread and yarn that I now offer hand-dyed crochet thread, and cotton worsted weight yarns.

My story of string isn’t done yet, and I look forward to whatever else comes my way.



As a fiber artist I strive to express by myself in both function and form. It is with this goal in mind that some of my designs have been featured in the follow books and/or magazines: So Pretty! Crochet: Inspiration and Instructions for 24 Stylish Projects by Amy Palanjian (May 2, 2012) Crochet Saved My Life: The Mental and Physical Health Benefits of Crochet by Kathryn Vercillo and Julie Michelle (Jul 1, 2012) and Interweave Crochet by Interweave Press (Summer 2013)
