Stacey has been bringing fun into the craft world with her successful designs and blog, FreshStitches, since 2008. She is the author of multiple books and the instructor of several Craftsy courses. Stacey firmly believes there is no 'right way' to knit, crochet, or craft and experiments with a variety of techniques to achieve her desired finished product. This philosophy spills over into her teaching style; she enthusiastically guides students in the way that works best for them...crafting should be fun, of course!
