I met my husband because his mom is a leader in the field of developmental psycholinguistics, and back when I was 23 I was a grad student in the same field. The rest is a longer story I’ll tell you if you want to know it, but I bring it up tonight because we just had the giddy pleasure of seeing his mom on The National. A study she did is running in the new issue of Science this week (this is about the most important journal out there), and it’s getting a huge amount of press attention. I’m so excited for her, and for her lab and her colleagues and her students!

Over my eighteen-year career in crafts and publishing I've written or co-authored seven books and edited countless others; founded, run and sold an online crochet magazine; served as editor of Interweave Crochet magazine; and spoken and taught at conferences across North America. Eventually I realized that working in craft publishing is my professional dream, with values of sustainability, equity, inclusion and diversity at the centre. In 2020, I co-founded Nine Ten Publications and its flagship online magazine, Digits & Threads. I live in Vancouver, Canada, where I weave, experiment with natural pigments I forage around my neighbourhood, and tweet photos of my family’s ridiculous dog.
