About

Thanks for visiting The Stitcherati! My name is Tressa and I’m a knitter, sewer and crafter in the New York City area. By day I’m a media professional but by night/weekend I like making stuff.

I come from a family of makers. My mom is an amazing quilter and sewer, my dad is a woodworker and gardener and my sister is also a knitter and sewer. I first start making things as a young girl — starting first with sewing Barbie clothes and then moved on to cross-stitch and got into knitting and crocheting about 13 years ago. I dabble in a lot of things and have a ton of unfinished projects.

I make a lot of mistakes in what I make but I hope you can learn from mine and maybe some of my projects will inspire your own!

Also, recently I have started to pursue my other passion–graphic design. To view my design portfolio, please visit it here. I have also created a Tumblr page devoted to graphic design inspiration.

If you would like to contact me directly, my email is thestitcherati at gmail dot com.
