I learned to knit when I was seven, and after a career teaching art and building costumes for theater, knitting still vies with textiles as my passion. Currently, I teach sewing, tailoring and patternmaking in my studio in the converted upper level of my barn. Enthusiastic members of my fiber community come together to learn and share, and since many of us are also knitters and weavers, we've transferred our skills to improving the fit and finish of our handwork.
Looking out at the woods and wildlife from my "treehouse" studio, we escape for a while from the demands of daily life and indulge ourselves in satisfying creativity. Interweave has a prominent place in my lending library! Thanks for the great website - it's a treasure trove of information and inspiration.
