Hi! I'm April, the designer and blogger behind Fiber Me Up! I'm based out of a small town in the Hudson Valley in NY. I'm a wife & mom. I first learned to crochet when I was a little girl. I did it off and on for almost 10 years. Then, when I turned 21 (after just having my daughter) my love for design developed. I wanted my daughter to have special things that couldn't be bought from a store so, I started to make her hats. Eventually, I created my first pattern. I ran a shop on Etsy for a few years, but got bored with the repetitive making and decided to move on. A year or so later, I was introduced to the world of fiber and fell in love! I learned how to dye fiber & spin yarn. Started with a drop spindle and worked my way up to a spinning wheel. I took a break from the fiber world for a while, but I eventually found my way back. In the last year, I've really put my heart into my designs and I feel like I've finally found my place in the fiber world!
