Daphnee caught the crafting bug early, learning to sew by hand from her grandmother and learning to knit and crochet from her aunt. In her teens, she discovered the Society for Creative Anachronism (a medieval recreation group), and learned to card fibres and spin them into yarns and weave them into beautiful pieces of trim. In university, her focus shifted to costuming and sewing. Fast forward to 2012 when she rediscovered knitting, spinning and weaving all over again, this time with the Internet. She found it a joy as an adult to rediscover the crafts through her local guild courses.
