Traci learned to knit from her Nan when she was little and she was always in awe of her grandmother's practical needle work skills. Returning to knitting in earnest while expecting her son ( who is now 17 ) she has been knitting and sewing away ever since. Her combined love for promoting all things fiber arts and Rhode Island brought about the state's first yarn crawl, various workshops and classes, and involvement in guilds and festivals. She loves to teach all sorts of practical crafts and skills and really believes that the knowledge needs to continue to be passed on to future generations. Traci is a knitter, spinner, sewer and somewhat weaver. She loves the fiber arts community in Rhode Island and has made many fabulous friends because of it, many of who are amazing artisans in their own right.
