She knits, quilts and sews

As the title indicates, she is a multi talented artist. She is Sandi of iKnitQuiltSew. Sandi was taught to knit and sew by her grandmother and has been honing her craft for nearly forty years, and you can see her old-fashioned, classic style in the pieces she creates. Below are a few of my favorites.
A multi purpose piece. Use it as a headband or cowl.

I love this one. It just feminine and the color is gorgeous.

I am in love with this last piece! I just love the playfulness of this quilt with the beautiful bold colors. This will definitely get the attention of any child.

Presenting the Handmade Artists Shop

The handmade artists shop ( HAF Shop), is a marketplace dedicated to artists and artisans sharing their art and crafts. the primary mission for the HAF’s Shop is to support handmade. With the flood of mass produced items out there that it often feels that the world has lost the respect for the small, independent merchant. It is so easy to go to one of those mega stores and get everything you want in one stop. Some of us think it’s better to take some time and create something with our hands and our imaginations. Visit the HAF shop and feel the love and story and personal attention that each artisan put into their craft. There is also a Forum where people can meet and share their projects ideas or just talk about life. A nice place to meet fellow artisans and make new friends. And last but not least, The Handmade artists blog will keep you updated with events, featured artists and topics that will keep you informed about what is going on, and even let you submit articles. Stop by, you won’t regret it.
