Wool, synthetic hair, embroidery, SHARPIES!

I am creating a zine for needle/thread hand embroidery featuring patterns, reviews and techniques.
How did you find Etsy?
Is there a story behind your store name?
Well I have lotsa handles for different things, geekchic is my hairstylist dig, cherry hammer is my roller girl name, so I needed something that would stick, and more importantly I would remember! I like fake dreads 'dreaded' also being a lapsed gothette; dreaded works for the OTHER stuff I am working on. ;) Kreations is what I do with my first initial thrown in there!
