Hi there. I joined the docrafts team as a demonstrator in October 2013. Before that I worked for 6 years in the craft department of my local garden centre, retailing and demonstrating as needed. I worked as a freelance papercraft demonstrator for some years before that. I love being a docrafts demonstrator, love working with the products new and old, and enjoy meeting fellow crafters at docrafts events. I live with my partner of 30+ years and my dear daughter's much loved but manic springer/kings charles cross beastie. My daughter has flown the nest now and thought it kind to leave Charlie with us. Hmmm. Obsessive compulsive behaviour does not begin to cover it, as any springer owner will testify! I also have a grown son who has flown the nest.
