Anna Toher

Fiber Ambassador: Iceland

Anna is a native Icelander living in Kópavogur in the capital area, working at the National Museum of Iceland in exhibition supervision and as a guide where she has the luxury to talk to guests and inform them about how Icelanders became the nation as it is today. She has a BA in Art History and Tourism, in addition to training to become a certified Guide in Iceland. Anna rediscovered knitting in 2020 after a 30-year pause and now is unstoppable! What a joy! Heather and Anna met at the museum during one of Heather's scouting trips and found out that they share the same passion for exploring the world through knitting and wool and wanting to share that with others through traveling. Joining Suzie and her group on an Iceland tour confirmed for Anna that found her new shelf in life.  She looks forward to meeting and adventuring with the RTTF community!

Lindsay Roberts

Fiber Ambassador: Scotland

is an avid knitter, spinner, and all-around fiber enthusiast plus writer, gardener, adventurer and appreciator of both cityscape and landscape.  When she realized she could combine her love of making things with her love for travel and new experiences, she found her happy place! Suzie lives in Santa Fe, New Mexico. She’s the author and illustrator of The Nervous New Owner’s Guide to Angora Rabbits. No longer a fiber animal owner, she loves nothing more than visiting fiber animals someone else owns -- preferably in another country. She writes about her travel experiences at www.studiobriddsang.com
