Please come and join me in my English-speaking or my German-speaking Ravelry Group.
I learned how to knit from my great-grandmother in Germany, when I was six years old. My great-grandmother was a master teacher in all the needle arts. My mother owned a yarn shop and used to design knitwear. From a young age onward, I used to knit for her shop, assist in designing garments and taught knitting and crochet. I am also a proficient seamstress and am well versed in embroidery, but working with yarn is my passion.

Some of my designs have been featured in Knitscene, Interweave Knits, Vogue Knitting, Love of Knitting, Knit ‘N Style, Knit Now, Interweave Crochet and Love of Crochet. I have also designed for several yarn companies, Cascade Yarns, Anzula, Universal Yarns, Premiere Yarns, and Willow Yarns. I also really enjoy independently publishing my designs and thanks to Ravelry, it is possible. Since I live in the movie capital, I also design knitting patterns and custom design and knit garments for several people in the movie industry. Vogue Knitting described my design style as “elegant and timeless”.

I love the fact that women from all over the world are knitting my designs/patterns! I have continued teaching knitting, especially top-down & bottom-up seamless knitting. I teach workshops throughout the U.S. and also in Germany.

I also am the founder and executive director of Fanm pou Fanm (Women for Women), a non-profit organization that works with some of the poorest women in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. We have opened a sewing shop where women can use the machines to sew garments for sale. We also teach the women basic business skills and supply them with fabric. Unfortunately, Haitian customs is so expensive, even though we have a non-profit tax exemption, that we have had to scale back our efforts.

I am also a lover of horses and avid rider, have been riding since I was about 4 years old. I own two horses and most recently purchased a third horse out of a kill-pen to prevent her from going to slaughter. I post regular updates on my English-speaking and my German-speaking Ravelry Group.
