Featured Artist: Lise Condis of Tre Liz plus Giveaway!

Publisher’s Notes:  Jillian Moreno.  Yup, THE Jillian Moreno…the one you know from oh, so many places in her present and past:  Knitty…Big Girl Knits…Interweave…PLY magazine.  When it comes to “thought leadership” in the fiber community, it’s hard to think of someone more accomplished.  It is my great pleasure to feature Jillian this week, here at […]
