This week I'm bringing you a chat with artist and crafter Kristin Roach, 24, of Moline, Illinois. Kristin is the creative force behind the website Craft Leftovers, where she posts free patterns weekly. Tune in to find out how this art major at Northern Illinois University manages to balance school, her job at a yarn shop and her crafty side businesses.
