Bio photo S. January


Shelia January has been knitting, crocheting and embroidering since she was eight years old. She credits knitting for “saving her sanity” while attending college and then working in the financial services industry for 28 years. She retired to a farm in Oregon where she lives with yaks, sheep, cattle, chickens, a cat and her husband. Twelve years ago she began spinning and has studied this art in both the USA and Canada. She knits and designs with her own handspun yarn as well as commercial fibers. She teaches spinning and knitting at retreats, shops, conferences and fiber festivals. Her patterns are featured in The Knitter’s Book of Yarn, Fiber Gathering and The Knitter’s Book of Wool.
