Margaret is an amazingly talented knitter and crocheter, (apparently that really is the term for someone who crochets)
She is a single mother to three children, She also has two grandchildren who she helps to looks after.
Margaret grew up in a rural village, Shithuve, in Limpopo, South Africa. Because of the terribly unfair political situation during her formative years, she received only very basic education and she left school at the age of 15 to start working to help support her family.
She currently works as a security guard in Johannesburg, for a very low wage. After hours, in between caring for her children and her grandchildren, she knits for Quillan Studio and she also crochets beautiful and creative amagurumi animals which she sells outside a local church on a Sunday.
The knitting and crocheting are a satisfying outlet for her creative streak and the extra income goes a long way to help her make ends meet.
