Since 2009 I give a knitting course of eight evenings for advanced knitters: Het Betere Breiwerk.

I’m owner-moderator of Ravelry-groups Knititng in Estonia, Twined Knitting and Dutch Knitting.

You can meet me at my weekly knitting night at Stitch ‘n Bitch Utrecht. I’m moderator for UtrechtSnB.

And you can find some of my articles and patterns in Handwerken zonder Grenzen. As The Dutch Knitters I write articles and design patterns for The Knitter.
One of my projects is Knitting in Japan, my Yahoo group in which knitters worldwide help each other to use Japanese books and patterns. I also am the owner of the Sampler M group, where you can find the patterns of an antique Dutch knitting sampler, Knitting in Estonia and Twined Knitting, a wonderful Swedish knitting technique.

I’m was one of the organisors for the national Stitch ‘n Bitch-Day 2006 and 2007 in November in Rotterdam.
