Sharon Welch grew up in a creative environment and learnt to knit when she was just four years old. Many years later, she had gained experience in a number of crafts and was inspired to send one of her cross-stitch designs to Bella magazine. She went on to have numerous projects published, and has written three books on knitted toys, cross stitch and soft toys. Sharon loves stitching and is an enthusiastic designer, and lives in Devon, UK.
