The origin of the name RainMomma is from my love of living in the Pacific Northwest. I was born and raised in Portland, Oregon and don’t intend on leaving it any time soon. I am a daughter, wife, mother and artist. The knitting and crochet work that you see on this site, as well as all my ingrained creativity, comes from a long line of creative people. All members of my family have their own creative streak, mine typically takes the form of fiber arts. The more time I spend doing what I love, knitting and crocheting, the more I understand how much a part of my soul it is.
Testimonial Love: “I have been knitting for about five years and never bothered to learn to crochet. When I saw a two part beginner crochet course offered at Make One, I thought I’d give it a try. I was a little nervous my first class, but as soon as I sat down with Michelle she put me at ease. She has a very calm and warm presence that is perfect for teaching rock bottom beginners like myself. By the end of the two part course on crocheting I felt confident enough to make blankets, scarves, and hats. After this positive experience I took another class with Michelle called intro to lace knitting. Not only was it really fun, it was informative. I would definitely recommend Michelle as an instructor to my friends and anyone else who wants to learn how to master fiber arts.” -Eboni Frederick-Pettway
