By way of introduction, I am Connie Sherlock owner and designer for Among Country Friends, Punch Needleworks and Son Shine Seed Company. I am also a web designer Sherlock Designs.

I started crafting many years ago; I couldn’t afford to buy what I wanted so I needed to learn how to make it. I call that my primitive period, that wasn’t the style it was my ability - or lack of it. After several years and many kinds of crafts I started doing craft shows. It wasn’t long before my new country friends were asking for patterns so I gave that a try and really liked it.  So now after more than 200 patterns I am back to (sort of) primitive -- this time by choice not ability (if that really isn't the case don't tell me -- you know the old saying ignorance is bliss).

I was interviewed for the Country Mouse Market Place - click here to see that interview.

Cloth Doll magazine interview below

I was very honored to be interviewed for an article in Cloth Doll magazine.  I have placed it here so you can read it if you like.  Just remember I only answered the questions, Beth wrote all the "nice stuff" that makes me sound "special".
