Amie is a lifelong fiber arts enthusiast who has fallen in love with knitting and sewing. She believes there are two types of knitting projects: the ones that require concentration and those meant for meeting up to chat with fellow knitters. She always has at least one of each on her needles.
Based in Durham, NC, Amie loves teaching for her local yarn shop and Durham Arts Council. She also teaches regionally at Southeastern Animal Fiber Festival.
She graduated from Georgia Tech with a Masters in Electrical Engineering. She interned for Lawrence Livermore National Lab before working in telecom for ten years. She dabbled in knitting and made a couple lumpy sweaters during college, but it was a slow learning process. After having kids, she discovered that carpool lines are excellent places to pick up an old skill and teach it new tricks. She finds that basic math and breaking patterns into simple chunks are the best way to take the guess work out of knitting projects.
Amie’s favorite projects include custom-fitted sweaters, brioche, and exploring the technical side of knitting. Her sweaters and colorful felted purses have won awards at the North Carolina State Fair and Southeastern Animal Fiber Festival.
