About Me

It must be my English/Scottish blood that gives me my love of wool fabrics. But I decided that my growing collection needed to start earning its keep.

I knew I wanted to make something functional, but also something a bit different and something that didn't take itself too seriously. And so my knitting bags came to be; they are a classic material used in a new way and give a utility item a new look. And they look great with yarn!

I design the bags in a large sunny studio in western Massachusetts. Each bag is constructed by me on a Tacsew 950 industrial sewing machine. She's a beaut! She'll so whatever I ask of her, never complains, and needs little maintenance.

My husband and I live in a house he designed and built and are accompanied everywhere we go by Zoe, a black lab mix. By the way, she is the best dog in the whole wide world!  ;)
