Dale grew up in a farming community where crafting handmade items was expected and valued. She’s been knitting and crocheting since she was a child and her mom taught her how. She states “The yarns available these days provide a perfect canvas for me to explore color and texture. I believe that everyone should be able to enjoy beautiful things so I try to keep my prices as low as possible. Mountain To Seas Knits came into being when I had exhausted my family and friend’s need for hand knit accessories. I grew up in Vermont and travel to see my sister in the Bahamas or Florida and I knit or crochet wherever I am.” Having now retired from a career as a Physical Therapist and co-founder of the CCATT assistive technology center with the Collaborative in Northampton, she is now enjoying even more time to design and create items from the fabulous fibers available. She shows in a number of craft fairs in Western Massachusetts including the Mattoon Street Fair, the Big Brothers Big Sisters Holiday Fair and the Old Deerfield Holiday fair. She also has a number of items in The Boutique in Easthampton.
