I have been designing professionally under the Embraceable Ewe label for more than 20 years. My designs have been published in Interweave Knits, Knitter’s Magazine, Knitscene and Vogue Knitting. My designs have also appeared in 60 Quick Knits for Babies, Cascade Yarns 60 Quick Knits, and 60 Quick Luxury Knits from Vogue Publishing. My exclusive children’s sweaters have been sold in shops throughout New England and Pittsburgh. I was also fortunate enough to be asked to design and knit the sweaters worn by actress Elizabeth Banks in the 2009 Russell Crowe film, The Next Three Days.
I grew up on an island 30 miles off the coast of New England, Nantucket. This spit of land still inspires me creatively and I am my most energized when I am on the island. The light, the colors, the gardens, and the craft history of the island all influence my work.
Currently I live on a 40 acre blueberry and apple farm in western Pennsylvania with 18 chickens, my enabling husband and my gardens. I have three beautiful grand children who are the best models in the world. One daughter is a professional photographer and some day we will write the knitting book I have in my head.
