Amy Keefer

I am a knitwear designer based in Berkeley, California. I view getting dressed as a daily act of performance art. I teach art, knitting and crochet classes throughout the Bay Area. I never tire of fisherman’s sweaters, watch caps and shawls. Northern California fashion is all about layering, and I often design convertible pieces that we can be worn here all year long. A big fan of the fog, I love living in a place where I can wear a sweater and go whale watching any day of the year.
