Hi there! I’m Carrie Graziano of crickets studio, and I basically love to create and make EVERYTHING! That’s why I opened my studio back in 1993, so I could show others how to do the crazy stuff that I think up! I’m a published author of decorative painting books and magazine articles, and before my kids came along I traveled around the US teaching cool students all about my art. I’m also an avid photographer and scrapbooker, having been in the scrapbooking business now for 10+ years. To “relax” my husband bought me a sewing machine in 1995, and well, I haven’t stopped quilting yet. I did take a short break when my daughter (she is 7) and my son (he just turned 3) were born. I’ve been back for about two years now with needle in hand and ready to go!
My blog is fairly new, and I’m venturing out into the online world of quilt blogging and designing. Although I have taught quilting classes in my studio, “teaching” via a blog is a whole new world for me. Check out my blog for my Tips & Tricks Quilt Along that runs this year. It’s a monthly class where at year-end we’ll have a lovely sampler quilt top, and some new techniques and tips under our belt, too! You may start anytime as we’re taking a slow pace. I hope to have more tutorials and another faster-paced quilt along up soon.
So, enjoy the fun row I’ve designed, feel free to pop questions to me. Remember to enjoy the journey!
