Meet The Expert
Sherry Duncan has an amazing wealth of craft knowledge. She not only brings experience and passion for quilting and sewing to the Annie's team and clients, but also an understanding of practical techniques in knit and crochet. She has published two knitting patterns.

Sherry began crafting as a teen. She started sewing vinyl tire covers using an old Singer sewing machine. This led to quilting and other kinds of sewing. After taking classes and learning wherever she could, she upgraded her machine to a Pfaff 1471, which she still uses today. Her husband came to love her sewing habits when she started sewing insulated coats for him. Those warm coats were perfect for all his outdoor activities.

Sherry has designed her own line of antique-looking dolls which required her to delve into decorative painting. From there she kept learning new techniques and crafts -- needlepoint canvas, needlework, embroidery, knitting, spinning, leather crafting, paper crafting and all other kinds of crafting.

She considers herself lucky to spend all day in the crafting world! She looks forward to continuing to learn and develop her skills and depth.
