1.Can you share with us a bit about your passion for Quilting, Crochet and Needlework, your self and how it got started?

I learned to do hand embroidery and cross-stitch from my mom, when I was 8 years old. It was on a handkerchief corner, few simple lazy daisy flowers and leaves. Later I tried hand embroidery on pillows, cushion cover etc. When I was in grade 4, I represented my school for district level craft competition. I got my first sewing machine, a manual singer machine from my dad when I was in grade 6.
