Hi! I’m Hayley (a.k.a. Cottage Chick). For me, making things isn’t a hobby–it’s a passion. And for many years I’ve been fueling that passion by teaching and designing knitting and crochet. Join me for inside info on my latest designs, video tutorials on tips and techniques, the odd recipe now and then, and whatever else strikes my fancy.
I was born, raised, and currently live, in Council Bluffs, Iowa–the home of the black squirrel and the scenic Loess Hills. Some of my other job titles are: Wife, Animal Lover, Sewing Enthusiast, Budding Photographer, Amateur Chef, Pot Scrubber, Rookie Gardener, and Kombucha Brewer. By day you can find me working and teaching at Personal Threads Boutique, in Omaha, NE.
