April found her love for textiles again after her son was diagnosed with type one diabetes at just 2 years old. While obsessively checking his blood sugar, she obsessively knotted - using macrame to cope with the stress of being mother and nurse to her son. One day she woke up and realized she had accidentally created Fiber+Blood and loved it in a way she had never loved any other job. Your support let’s April continue to work from home to be near her son Ocean and bring diabetes awareness and education to the macrame lovers of the world.
