Natalie began to knit as a little girl while visiting with her English grandmother, a beautiful woman who could make anything with just a couple of needles and some string from her purse. It was magical.

Having knitted for family and friends for years, Natalie has begun taking on a few commissions  and making some pieces available for sale through her online shop, Olive Manna.

She has also recently opened a local mini shop at The Bitterman in downtown Evansville, Indiana. There she also teaches knitting and crochet.

Her husband and three girls take up the rest of her time as a wife, mother, and homeschool guide. 

A portion of all sales are given back to God by helping Samaritan's Purse and/or other missionaries caring for people around the world.
