Lora Groszkiewicz is the Editorial Assistant for Bead&Button magazine. Her first time trying a craft was at the age of seven when her Grandma taught her to knit. Funny, Grandma couldn't read a pattern, so Lora learned to just follow along! After she got the hang of knitting, crochet came next, and then macrame (which she learned from books), and as a pre-teen she would sometimes trade babysitting services for sewing lessons. Her eyes were opened to beading in 2000 when she joined the Bead&Button staff, and now she’s an expert who keeps us all super organized! In her free time, she likes to vacation in either Las Vegas or Mexico with her handsome husband Dale.
