Whoo ... Are You?
I am Angela Lamoree.
I was born and grew up in Las Vegas, Nevada, then moved to WNC in 2008. I’ve been crafting since I was six-years-old thanks to my aunts who taught me how to crochet and cross-stitch. After my youngest son was born, I took a quilting class and have been quilting and sewing ever since.
My husband and I opened, 5 Little Monkeys Quilt & Sew in 2017. We choose the name because we have five children. We also have two dogs and three cats. We have a very busy, full, and happy life.
Do you have any hobbies other than crafting?
I love to cook, bake, and hike. I’m a geek so I love to try new things. I also like to watch nerdy movies. Sci-fi is my love language.
Are there certain colors you gravitate toward?
I love bright colors, and I love white because any color you put next to it creates a great contrast.
What is your favorite Thanksgiving Day food?
How do you relax?
Well I used to quilt, but now with the shop, that’s my job. So, I relax by cross-stitching.
What have you learned from being a shop owner?
Owning a shop is like having a newborn baby. Sometimes I feel like someone is constantly pooping on me. Everything is new and exciting, but you also feel like you don’t always know what you are doing and you have to make it up as you go.
We’ve learned to live with no sleep, no hot food, and no privacy. But we wouldn’t trade it!
Where is your dream vacation?
Anywhere where there are old castles that I can imagine dragons and fantasy creatures.
What is your favorite sit-com and which character are you?
Big Bang Theory. I’m Leonard.
What kind of music do you enjoy most?
Eclectic—just about everything except country.
If you could have one superpower, what would it be?
Physical strength like Wonder Woman.
What is something simple that makes you happy?
Frogger, my pound-puppy. I’m also an outgoing-introvert so I love “quiet.”
