I’m Alison, the designer at Art. Craft. Life. I’ve been making and crafting in one form or another for most of my life. My first project – that I can remember – was a baby bonnet knit for a new cousin. I remember I was young enough that my mum had to sew the ribbons on to tie it closed. I moved away from textile work in my teens and early twenties to pursue music and even went to a high school for the performing arts. I continued with music through university and actually have a degree in Historical Musicology! I returned to knitting when my son was born and now, I happily knit, spin and weave whenever I have a spare moment.
When I’m not crafting, I can be found tending a large vegetable garden, engrossed in a book, running or on a yoga mat. I also wrangle two large dogs, one cat, one teenage boy, and work for a software company as a Learning and Knowledge Management Specialist.
