Welcome to Megan Mills' Home page!
Let me introduce myself - my name is Megan, I was born in 1964 and I have been married since 1983. I live in Auckland, New Zealand. I work full time but in my spare time I like to play around with my hobbies (don't we all?). I run a knitting group from my home twice a month and volunteer demonstrating handcrafts at a local historical home once a month too.
From as early as I can remember I've loved gardens, flowers, lace, history and handcrafts. I think it was inevitable that my hobbies would end up revolving around those things. I like to share, too and so that is why I have this web site.
Here you'll find a bit of my cake decorating, heirloom sewing, knitting and crochet. Mostly it's about the the knitting and crochet! If I come up with a technique or pattern that I think is worth sharing I publish it on this web site. If I figure out how a vintage or antique item was made that seems to have no pattern available anymore (if there ever was one), I publish that as a "rescue pattern" on my web site too. (If you have such an item that you want re-created so it doesn't get lost to history, please get in touch. If I think I can do it, and if I have the time, I'd be happy to try. I don't charge anything, I just enjoy trying to solve the puzzle and rescue the pattern if I can.)
If you scroll through the icons on the left of this page you'll see my designs and my historical rescues. Of course, clicking on the icons takes you through to that design's web page.
I hope you enjoy looking around.
