Carina Rego

My name is Carina and I enjoy creating anything really. I am originally from Argentina but live in Sydney, Australia. I am a wife, mum and an employee but when I can tune out from these roles I love to craft. As a child I taught myself how to crochet after observing my BFF’s mother. I always had to indulge in trial and error as I am lefty, things happen in reverse. But that was ok because I always persevered and found a way. I remember using paper piercing technique in year 2 to decorate the front cover of an exercise book. I can remember it clearly, the front had three vertical stripes, the two outer being orange and the middle was white which I pierced a fish. I have fond memories of crafts in my childhood. A friend introduced me to cross stitch whilst at university and I have been making cards for decades. About 16 years ago my parents and I discovered the world of miniatures. I like to try all crafts, happy to give anything a go, at least once. Name it I have attempted it, calligraphy, sewing, painting, photography, bookbinding, quilting. Happy crafting.
