"Coming together with women of the same generation, who share a creative spirit, is a major highlight"


What is your knitting specialty?
If I had to name one thing I would say recycling yarn from apparel that's no longer being worn. I love to take apart sweaters I've made which are out of style or don't fit, wash the yarn to restore it and create something brand new.

What neighborhood do you live in?
II live in Park Slope Brooklyn

What do you like doing when you are not knitting?Taking long walks, hiking, tennis, learning new crafts, reading, and hanging out with my grandchildren.  

Who taught you how to knit and how long ago?My mother taught me to knit when I was 6 or 7.

How long have you been living in New York? I moved to New York shortly after my first child was born and have lived here for 48 years.  

What do you want to say about your family life, your passion, your dreams? I am passionate about my loving supportive family. My husband and I have been married for 50 years, have 2 grown daughters and are blessed with 2 precious grandchildren.  I dream of being able to spend more time traveling 

What’s the craziest / longest / most difficult thing you’ve knitted?  I was asked to knit a sweater for a famous artist using the image of one of his paintings as the motif.  It was a multi-step process which required great precision and turned out to be a huge accomplishment.  Only problem - I was sworn to secrecy so I can't share more information than that!!!

 Why do you like working for WoolN?  Knitting is a true passion. WOOLN has given me an opportunity to do what I love using the very finest materials. Coming together with women of the same generation, who share a creative spirit, is a major highlight.  It is a very special feeling working with young women who value and appreciate what seniors have to offer
