Brenda Stulz creates intricate crochet pieces. She was inspired when she asked a friend to teach her and was told she would never learn due to the way she held her crochet needle. She definitely proved this was not the case! She taught herself using tutorials, hard work, and determination. Visit The Artisan Shop to purchase her works of art.
