If you haven’t heard of Sutton Foster yet, than it’s time to get acquainted!
This beautifully talented lady does it all from acting, singing, and dancing, to crafting.
If you’ve caught an episode of the TV show Younger than you may know Sutton Foster as Liza Miller. In the pilot we meet her, a divorced middle aged mom struggling to get back into the work force taken over by a younger generation. You’ll have to watch the show to learn more! We don’t want to be giving out any spoilers!
Although Younger may have brought Sutton to the attention of many, her work goes far beyond.
Through her years as a performer Sutton has received dozens of awards and nominations for her talents as a dancer, singer and actor on screen and stage. There is no doubt about it, Ms. Foster is a talented lady!
Sutton may have an impressive acting career (and things are looking good for the future with the announcement of her starring in The Music Man alongside Hugh Jackman!), but you can tell that above it all she loves being a mother.
Sutton is open about her journey to motherhood and the adoption of her daughter Emily. After having faced these struggles firsthand, she understands the importance to spread awareness and supporting other parents and families working through their own adoption journey.
We’re often somewhat surprised when we learn our favorite musicians or actors are crafters. Turns out they’re no different from us!
As crafters we get it, knitting and crocheting is relaxing and a great way to calm mind and body. Sutton says she learned to knit as a child from a relative and then took up crochet later on. In a quote she states, “I think I have social anxiety, and it’s a healthy way to keep busy”.
For Sutton, as for many of us, craft brings together other aspects of our worlds. Motherhood and acting are both present in her stitches. Follow her on Instagram (@Suttonlenore) and you will see shots of her crocheting behind the scenes at shoots and making projects for her daughter.
Last year Sutton posted these photos of her first original corner to corner crochet blanket. You can see her Instagram post HERE.
There are fun things to come! In the next few weeks keep an eye out for special selections picked by Sutton! She will be sharing her favorite yarns and projects.
