Growing up in Switzerland Sylvia learned from an early age on to make all sorts of handcrafts. She especially liked to knit. Sylvia made many sweathers, socks, etc., mostly as gifts for family and friends. Later on, when working as a Flight Attendant for PanAm and traveling the world, she designed and created scarves, since they are light in weight, dress up all kinds of outfits and can take the place of jewelry. The yarns Sylvia uses range from casual to very dressy and elegant.
