About Millie

One of my goals at MillWorks is to present you with craft projects that are affordable, yet yield heirloom-quality results you can be proud of. Finding the supplies you need for a craft is as simple as looking for your friendly MillWorks buildings. When yarn is needed in a project, for example, the yarn mill will show up at the top of the page. The barn is for those little things that may be anywhere around the house--including pet fur!
