Our Team

Heather Radl

loves designing and leading knitting and fiber tours. She’s fascinated with local traditions, unique yarns, and the modern twist added to both by current designers. Her ever-widening exposure to both has led to a long queue of patterns and a dramatic accumulation of stash!  She’s also been trying her hand at new wooly endeavors like felting and spinning. When not knitting, traveling or planning your next trip, Heather tends her small flock of chickens and ducks, volunteers in her local thrift shop, and spends time with her two dogs, her husband’s cat, her family, and friends in Dunbarton, NH.

Suzie Briddsang

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

Amor Valdez

is native to northern New Mexico and comes from a long line of makers. On her way to a career in social anthropology, she was bitten by the fiber bug… and has been immersed in color, texture and the fiber community ever since. She was the founder and artisan of Crave Yarn, then quickly expanded into a design shop and studio, AMORES. She’s a true fiber aficionado, honing her understanding of fiber sources and quality through her dye, design and bespoke yarn base work. Amor loves yarn, people, a beautiful spreadsheet and a finely crafted email. You can follow her whimsical love of fiber and color and knitting on Instagram: @amoresperanzadesigns
