From Lawyer to Fiber Artist

About 8 years ago, my sister-in-law reintroduced me to knitting, which I had tried as a child but quit soon after. As knitting quickly grew into my passion, I started weaving as well under the direction of Melissa Johnson, an incredible fiber artist. My children soon became overwhelmed with all my knitted gifts so they suggested I share my knitting through an Etsy shop. What started as a hobby quickly grew into my passion.


So now I knit and weave full time as well as produce costumes and props for Boston burlesque community and local cosplayers. I have a website that shows off my prop building, costume design, weaving and other interesting stuff. You can find that website at http://mamabones.weebly.com/index.html


I have three incredible children who encouraged me to open this store. My eldest is a producer and dancer in Boston. Her troupe, the Slaughterhouse Society, performs often in the Boston/Cambridge/Salem area. My son is a 18 year old drag queen. My youngest daughter hopes to be an animal physical therapist but for now concentrates on ballet, fashion and making scale mail earrings. She is also the model for many of my items.


I work out of my home, an 1889 Victorian that I love. I hope you enjoy looking around and find something that is perfect for you. I love to develop patterns and custom designs, so please don't hesitate to contact me if you want something "different."
