I am new to this board but have been a professional crafter for years. I owned and operated a glass business in NE Wisconsin specializing in stained, blown and fused glass as well as neon signs. I moved to Minnesota 13 years ago after I closed my business. Mostly I have been doing office work since then. I taught glass art at a chain of studios in the Twin City area about 6 years ago. I am now working freelance doing graphic art on the computer.
A year ago I had to have surgery and cannot work in an office setting any longer. I have to start generating an income again so I find myself falling back to my "comfort zone" of crafting. I do crafts of all types including foam carving, jewelry making, polymer clay sculpting, glass bead making. My newest obsession is fiber art, specifically quilting.
