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 wet felting. 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.

By the next year, she’d started her own business, 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: @amoresyarnstudio.
