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.
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, Horizons International, and/or other missionaries caring for people around the world, through rebuilding, feeding and clothing, praying with and for, teaching and evangelism, and many other intangible services.
Sometimes this all gets to be too much WORK and I want to do something more with my time. A friend referred me to Love Squared, a local organization based in Toledo, OH. They collect crochet and knit squares to make blankets for homeless children. If this is something you'd like to do too, please join them, or bring your squares downtown to the Bitterman, c/o Olive Manna! I'll collect them and send them on for you.
