The Constant Gatherer

On November 25th 2007, I sold my first yarn wreath from my Etsy shop. The idea came to me when I heard about my friend and fellow artist, Molly Evans making "yarn nests" for a project. Somehow that led me to think of making these. I realize I was not the first crafter to make a yarn wreath (I've since seen them in vintage craft books and friends have found them at garage sales!), but at the time my searches on Etsy and elsewhere on the internet showed no other sellers producing the same. I contributed a DIY tutorial on crafting them for Craft Stylish magazine in 2009, which can be found here:  Craft Stylish Wreath DIY
