Colleen Barth From Designs by Colleen

I started knitting about three years ago, but come from a family of knitters. My mother knitted for years and taught me to knit when I was a child, however at that time I found it very boring.  After my children were born and raised I started knitting for charity work and raffles. I totally enjoyed it and started knitting all the time.

I live in a small rural community in Northern Kentucky. I have two grown children and 6 grandchildren and another baby due the middle of July. My oldest grandchild is also learning to knit and we spend a lot of time sharing new ideas.

Hello Colleen, I am knitting items for my Etsy site - and I would like to use the Stash-N-Go Purse pattern and the coin purse patterns to sell. Because your patterns seem to be copyrighted I would acknowledge you as the designer but if you charge to use the patterns please let me know. Thanks for taking the time to read this. I hope to hear from you soon. If you would like to email me my address is Roberta Ransley-Matteau
